Saturday Night Smackdown

Image hosted by Photobucket.comAP photo/Chris Gardener. Dang, Penn State's QB Michael Robinson is pretty good!

All Happy Valley's in a tizzy, I say we seriously consider taking at least a week off to just plain recover from all the excitement and the sudden weather change from balmy autumn leaves falling to floodgates of rain wrath and colder temps. Today in town it was like everyone had that college town Sunday hangover..."Dude, I just need some cheese fries and a beer or like an omlette or something", in sweatshirts, baseball caps, flip flops, or exactly whatever people were wearing when they tumbled into bed last night after revelling in Penn State's win over Ohio State. With the win, Penn State football is now undefeated AND has beaten nemesis Ohio State, so it's all very exciting, and of course doesn't mean much in light of the fact that 20,000 people in Asia are dead from an earthquake, but it's a good feel-good distractor.

I watched the game over at Red, Red Rine's where the majority were OSU fans but, let's face it, there's nothing wrong with a mixed viewing party once in a while to keep things exciting. One thing we can all agree on, regardless of Big Ten allegiance, is that we all cannot stand ugly old MICHIGAN (vs. WAZZU at Rose Bowl or vs. any Big Ten team any time or just, in general as a rule). So the fact that Michigan LOST to 'ole Minnesota yesterday made the game at State College even more fun. I will make the sweeping declaration now that if Penn State beats them next week in beautfiul downtown Ann Arbor, then we will be talking exciting post season and no students will study any more this semester and/or the board of directors and powers that be will petition for a new major, to be titled "Applied Tailgating".

Go Lions, and someone please take the crack away from the Washington State Cougars locker room, it's making them lose at home to woosy teams like Stanford. My thrill is with the Pac-10, but Big Ten is getting pretty exciting here.

Over, out. Comments, roger that:

I just found out about the earthquake today and I was shocked! But I am glad I do not live in Asia

While we're getting high off life in Happy Valley, it's nice to see others know what really matters. But Fuck Michigan! I hope they all choke and die!!! Sign me up for Applied Tailgating btw. I already have a Masters in it (aka a werid-looking bruise that I must have gotten yesterday somehow while drunk;)

Humph! I want to ne excited about MY team too! But with all of our winnable games now lost, all does not look well for the 2005 Cougars. Ah well, I'm still a super fan, and shall still win the day for crimson and gray, at every possible opportunity.

For now, it seems that my only hope is that Oregon will take a big stand post-season. Who knows...

Michigan sucks. I heart Michigan State though.

we can always win the day for crimson and gray. as long as they win the Apple Cup and/or the Huskies go 2-45, things will be ok. press onward, football soldiers!

The first year I was here at PSU, someone had a shirt for the MI game that said "Ann Arbor is a whore." It doesn't seem that funny now, but at the time, I really, really, really wanted one.

Between the Nittany Lions' win and the Braves finally losing their division title for the first time in, oh, 16 years or whatever (to Roger Clemens, how awesome is that?), it was a good, good weekend sportswise.
