Per the Tailgating Coordinator

Hey Alumni,

Just a reminder: If would like to see the games that we are tailgating, single game alumni tickets are going on sale at 1000 hrs June 30. You can only get tickets thru http://www.GoPSUsports.com There is a limit of two tickets for the Saturday, Oct. 21 Homecoming battle with Illinois. Tickets are selling out fast, so be sure to get them now.

I also have 2 tickets to sit with Johnny (AKA Chris F) and I in section WCU for $50 each. Let me know if you'd like to sit with us.

Our 2006 tailgates are :
09-30-2006 Northwestern (Oktoberfest tailgate)
10-21-2006 Illinois (Homecoming)

I also still have hotel rooms for the games we are tailgating. The sooner you let me know, the more likely we'll still have space.

For the Glory,

Posting this because of the tennis connection and it for some reason makes me happy knowing that Steffi Graff now knows about Penn State....

I'm so stinkin' competitive

the fellas at EDSBS linked to a guy (a Georgia Tech guy, mind you) who is ranking the college football conferences by strength of Mascots. An admirable concept, but I feel that much of his analysis falls off the mark. And, for as biased as I am regarding the furry fellows who follow the football faithful, I got all annoyed with the as yet to be written critique of the Nittany Lion (just assumption, based on the dude's write-ups of the ACC mascots - how on earth can anyone from the ACC have any respect for FSU? how?). But it's okay to disagree; if it weren't for dissent we would all still be having kippers for breakfast.
