Re: What was your toughest defeat as a Penn State football fan?

Joe frequently pivoted from riverboat gambler to utterly predictable. On that day, he was predictable. I want to believe that the ghosts of Sugar Bowl '79 were dancing in his head when he decided to go for the FG. Not good times. I remember riverboat gambler occasionally, it was always an enormous ...

Re: What was your toughest defeat as a Penn State football fan?

Mad, I understand, everyone who attended or watched the game understands. I've never watched a game taken out of the hands of a team after such a dominating performance as our last drive against Alabama in the 1989 game. Blair Thomas appeared to be running against the scout team. The game was taken ...

Re: What was your toughest defeat as a Penn State football fan?

I was thinking of witness-in-person defeats when I mentioned the safeties-only box score. The inaugural (in person) game of dejection for me was 1989 Alabama. The crowd was electric as the game-ending drive made it into layup field goal range for what seemed like an awesome comeback to win. The sud...

Re: What was your toughest defeat as a Penn State football fan?

The younger set has spoken. While I attended the Minnesota debacle and it was horrible, the Alabama game that we were outcoached by the Bear again when we were the better team was worse. We hadn't been awarded an MNC yet as it was completely subjective at that time (how much different now, semi-subj...

Re: Politics

Grower, missed by a safety. I remembered the 28 part by missed on the single digit. Thanks for the correct number. It does sound familiar. Mad, I spent many visits to Bedford south on 220 and 56 at the Cessna Seven Gables restaurant toward Jtown for my brother's orthodontia adjustments dentist. Due ...

Re: Politics

Hate to see people fired, generally. Brillo had to be closing in on retirement age and certainly was in the age range to be targeted for a replacement to reduce costs, etc. along with his accumulated baggage of generations of service (how many bosses he offended or was on their $hIT list for meaning...

Re: Politics

That makes me smile. The last time I watched WJAC TV news, I was shocked at the "youthiness" of the on air talent. They look like babies. I rarely watch local news here in Harrisburg. I have no interest. And I'm trying not to watch cable/national news because it depresses the hell out of ...

Re: Politics

If Monica died someone may have, the point.

Of course, with the Clintons people do have a habit of passing on if they know too much but those dozen or so coincidences must be a remarkable....... coincidence........ Wrong mountain to stake your claim upon. ;)
