Thus Opens 2018...

Postby pennstate92 » Sun Dec 31, 2017 11:34 am

And lo, the players rejoiced and the throng of adoring admirers sang hymns and the party went well into the night. And then, buttressed by success, the men went home to their womenfolk, and the women went home to their men folk. Left behind was an empty stadium, and some poor schmuck who had to clean up the mess.

And so did the long, cold winter begin. Soon enough, their triumph forgotten by those who witnessed, the worthy warriors began the next stage of their careers. Some, their time complete, moved on to new endeavors. Others began the task of meeting or exceeding their forebears' success. And so, for the commoners, self righteous and dedicated followers of heroes high above them, the long, slow, nine month crawl to redemption began yet again. Hope fleeting in the darkness of January, yet growing each month as February brought new recruits, and March brought spring practice and April brought the BW game...on to summer practices and, eventually, September, 2018, when hope renews fresh in the breasts of the faithful (may such breasts be ample).

Congrats to our heroes. Good luck to those moving on. Health and purpose to those who remain. See you in September, vs. Appy State. Happy New Year to you all.

We Are.

You know, it's not healthy to drink before noon. Just sayin'.....
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

We still have the NFL playoffs before we have to get depressed about winter.

Wiz, James, Mauti, Stupar, Hali, Poz, Ficken, Johnson, Hogan ...... let's hope a Penn Stater gets a SB ring
