Fight On State
BF: "I'll bet a lot of people cancel this weekend."
Me: "Honey ...It's Penn State Football. They'll be here."
I was right.
Amazingly, we woke up to a bright, sunny morning. The rest of the weekend was absolutely perfect. PSU beat UCF 37-13. They're gonna have to shape-up though if they want to beat the Big Ten teams coming up. They were sloppy, but they still won.
Hooked up with a couple of my best friends from back in the day. Went to our favorite bar (Zeno's) and saw our old favorite band (The Screaming Ducks) who still turn up every now and then, and can still rock like nobody's business. Had a fantastic time. We always do.
Grilled stickies at The Diner...a little shopping...back to Zeno's so the BF could watch the NASCAR race. Time to go home. The expected 4-hour drive (including dinner) was flawless.
We're thinking of stopping by again, while traveling between R.E.M. shows in NYC and Pittsburgh. They're playing Northwestern that weekend though. Finding a room is pretty much impossible. I'd probably have better luck asking Stipe and Co. for a ride from NYC->PGH.
Did I mention the Stickies? Did I mention the thousands of hot hot hot college boys? They didn't make them like that when I was in school. The boys that is. The stickies are every bit as good as they were 20 years ago. The boys are better though. Unfortunately, we were only able to fill the trunk with stickies.
