2017-2018 Penn State Football thread

Any recommendations for good places to watch a game downtown State College? I'll be in town for the Pitt game. No tickets, but I do have a parking pass. We're going to tailgate then walk to a bar to watch the game. I know there are a ton of options and it will be on everywhere. I'm looking for decen...

There are a finite number of qb jobs in the world. There are a ton of guys that want those jobs. The owners are clearly in the driver's seat here. If they don't want to deal with a bunch of baggage then why should they have to?

Anyone else remember Woodson's bar in Station Square? I went there once when I was younger. There's not much info on it, but I did find a "program" from there with the menu. Funny to look at it now.

Stumbled across this 8x10 on eBay. Not even sure what I'm going to do with it yet. Frame it with rookie cards of the 4?
Seems like an odd number to commemorate. If he stays healthy, Malkin should hit 900 this year.

BEER

One of the breweries in the area (Elk Creek, if anyone is familiar), brings a beer truck to the local farmer's market. I took my growler today and get a fill. She filled it about 7/8 of the way and the keg kicked... she said "it's not the whole way filled, it's on the house, unless you want me to d...

The Boo Box.
This might be common knowledge, but I was surprised to learn a few years ago that the pirate that gets thrown in the boo box was played by Glenn Close.

About 6 weeks from my wedding. Things have gone relatively smooth so far. The photographer cut us a good deal and I got a free airport shuttle-type bus to use between the ceremony and reception. So that has helped keep some costs down. I have basically let my fiance handle everything, which has been...

I've been thinking about the bad media issue and wonder if it's an issue of poor expectations. I grew up listening to Myron and Stan on WTAE and it was like being handed manna from heaven.

Steve Taneyhill (standout QB at South Carolina) has applied to come home and coach the Altoona Mountain Lions football team. His dad coached the girls to several state basketball championships.
They should've never joined the WPIAL.

Those 50 Shades movies.............. are they as bad as they look? Because they look fcking terrible.
I didn't think it would be possible to fall asleep watching a movie with that much nudity. That's now happened twice to me.

The back roads here are a mess, but once I got to the highway it was fine ... except for the freaking ramps. The on and off ramps were completely untouched. Luckily as I was exiting the absolutely gorgeous, clean road onto a ramp with 6 inches of snow still on it, I saw it far enough ahead of time ...
