Let’s Not Even Talk About That Game
I don’t wanna talk about that Rose Bowl thing, OK?
But in catching up on some e-mails from the past week, I did come across this column from Neil Rudel ’78, of the Altoona Mirror. It’s called “Peeking into Penn State’s ’09 fortunes” and it’s a tongue-in-cheek list of predictions for Penn State sports in 2009. My favorites:
“Dr. Wayne Sebastanielli is seen screaming at JoePa after the latter tries an onside kick in an August practice.”
“JoePa makes more national news by coaching the entire game against Eastern Illinois from his back porch.”
One last note about the Bowl Game of Which We Will Not Speak: My 23-year-old nephew, Hunter, lives in L.A. and managed to get tickets to yesterday’s game. (Though he’s a Pitt grad, I’m pretty sure he was rooting for Penn State yesterday.) I told him that he had to promise to go up to at least one Penn State fan and ask if they were familiar with The Penn Stater magazine. He e-mailed me this morning to report: “I sat by a guy that said he reads The Penn Stater front to back. He did not stay the entire game.”
