Don't forget the carnival

Um, yeah, the Game itself isn't held outside of the stadium, but we get the idea.

Brainwashing campaign officially underway

For the next generation of PSU fans... As I had previously reported, Katie has already visited campus, the Corner Room, The Tavern, and her favorites, Animal Kingdom and The Growing Tree.

Katie and her little sister got PSU sweatshirts for Christmas (Santa is so on board). Kate enjoys wearing her sweatshirt she knows it makes me "so happy" and she loves yelling "Penn State!" Her parents (who, if I haven't mentioned are not Penn Staters) usually pair the sweatshirt with a matching pair of navy sweatpants - it's fabulous - she looks like a little wrestler.

Here's a picture of Kate in hers, practicing her "Don't I really deserve an A" look.

Those stinkin' Penguins are red!

And here I thought they'd be black and white and wear top hats and tails - Nope - the Penguins of Youngstown State (I still have to shake my head and smile about their mascot choice) don red and black uniforms.

So, the reality of this observation is that we have 2 NO red tailgates this season - Penguins in Sept and Temple Owls in Nov.

Ya know - Tressell coached at YSU for 15 years - the seeds of the evil sweatervest were planted there.

The Freezer is Full

Okay - we could fit more in if we reorganized - but, seriously, the chest freezer in Suz' garage (and the one atop the fridge, btw) is FULL!

We (especially Suz') went on a baking spree this weekend - mostly sweets, but a couple of savory items as well.

So very exciting - and everything is mighty tasty as usual.

And the Dieselers are planning a "flag pole party" later this month to make flag poles for some of the crew, including US! So that's super exciting - of course that also means that we have to get a flag. We have a couple PSU flags, but I think we're interested in designing a custom flag - and either have someone make it for us - or try to make it ourselves -

My boss is friends with a super duper talented artist who I hope to have design us a "lion" - or maybe we'll come up with something - we do have all spring and (most of) summer to work on it! Unless, of course, we want to have something ready for Blue/White - hmmmmmmmmmm
