Gary Eberle’s Funky Truck

img00032-eberle-truckMy friend Elaine Keller ’68, who is rapidly becoming my top source of blog fodder, passes along this photo from friends who are currently vacationing in California’s wine country. One of the spots they visited is a respected winery owned by former Penn State football player Gary Eberle ’67. The friends report:

“We are in Paso Robles heading into our third winery—Eberle—and see this funky truck painted blue and white with ‘Penn State Forever’ painted on the front. After a few glasses of wine, Gary Eberle comes out from back and we start asking him about the truck. He played defensive tackle for Papa Joe, and is going to the Rose Bowl. We had to buy a few bottles of vino from him!!!”

As a side note, you may remember that The Penn Stater won the Sibley Award as the best alumni magazine in the country in 2007. It’s customary for the editor of the Sibley-winning magazine to send a bottle of wine to the editor of the following year’s Sibley winner, so when the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine won the 2008 Sibley, I sent editor Sean Plottner a bottle of 2007 Estate Chardonnay from the Eberle winery. Sean reported that it was excellent.

A Poignant Story About Aaron Maybin

My friend Elaine Nell Keller ’68 in Boiling Springs, Pa., who follows Nittany Lion football even more closely than I do, called my attention to a story that ran this week on Aaron Maybin, Penn State’s All-American defensive end. In the piece, Maybin talks about the death of his mom when he was just 6 years old; the story is, needless to say, very sad. It’s a side of Maybin I never knew about.
