So I was out to lunch today with some co-workers and (one of) my favorite future Nittany Lion. The "grown ups" asked her where she was going to go to college (she's 5) - Meredith College (in NC), Penn State, Duke, Rutgers (?) or an art school (kid has mad artistic talent) - before I could influence her - she said "I want to go to Penn State" - "they" asked "why" -- she looked at me and softly said "because they have football players."
I believe I would have had the same answer at her age (any age, really - except maybe for a brief moment, as a teenager, when I was sure that I wanted to go to Southern Cal).
Brilliant child, beyond compare!
