A Windy Day in Happy Valley — and, Wait a Minute, We’re Losing to Eastern Illinois?!
The big story on a slow news day in State College is the gusty wind that kicked up last night and has lingered through the day. It’s only a minor annoyance for most of us, but for the folks replacing one of the big “Penn State” banners in the south end zone of Beaver Stadium, it’s more than that. Some of the roads around the stadium have been closed and Loop buses have been rerouted after panels flew off the stadium and damaged at least one car in the lot across the street. So if you’re anywhere on campus today, or especially near the stadium, heads up.
Side note: The Centre Daily Times sent a photographer up there to document the news, and he brought back an image that appears to show where the panels blew off. I sent the link to the a friend of mine, Dave Young ’97, who caught a detail I’d missed. His response:
What is the score?!
If this is a motivational ploy from Joe Paterno, it’s a good one.
