I’m back from my Pennsylvania vacation, having spent one afternoon and evening in State College, first walking around the Penn State campus and then later, wining and dining downtown. I returned with a little Nittany Lion football quiz for you.
I visited the All-Sports Museum, making a couple of purchases in the obligatory gift shop. At one point in the football section of the museum I had to laugh out loud when the PA system blared out a recording of Paterno addressing the troops in the locker room with the Hamlet’s “To Be or Not To Be” soliloquy, Joe’s all-time favorite. The old coach was, of course, a contemporary of William Shakespeare. But I digress.
Around the corner from the All-Sports Musem, on the east side of Beaver Stadium, is the famous Paterno sculpture by Angelo di Maria. I spent some time examining it and photographing its nuances. In this connection, I have some questions for you savvy Nittany Lions fans.
