Happy St. Patrick’s Day, and welcome back from spring break. We enjoyed a couple of sunny, warm, spring-like days in Happy Valley last week. Today, it’s 21 and overcast. Oh well.

Still hoopin’: The Nittany Lion basketball team lived to play another day, accepting an invite Sunday to play in the College Basketball Invitational. Penn State will host Hampton at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the BJC. The Lady Lions, meanwhile, will learn their NCAA tournament fate tonight when ESPN airs its “Selection Monday Special.”


A harvest of sticky & sweet: This weekend marks the annual Maple Harvest Festival at Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center, the Penn State-run nature center about 12 miles from University Park. As the father of young kids, I can say this is an event we look forward to every year: Fun educational activities in a beautiful setting in the Central Pennsylvania hills, and the annual pancake breakfast topped with delicious, fresh, locally produced, and 100 percent real maple syrup. As this Penn State News feature explains, it’s also a great exercise for the undergrads who work the event. I can already smell the pancakes…

Kicking off: James Franklin and his staff are set to open up the practice fields today for the start of spring practice, but it turns out the players aren’t the only ones primed to get on the field: Over the weekend, Nittany Lion assistant Josh Gattis decided to see how fast he can run the 40-yard dash. The ensuing video is hilarious.

The Blue White Game is just 26 days away.
