The Nittany Lions have elected their captains for 2008. They are Josh Gaines, Sean Lee, and A.Q. Shipley. Although Lee is injured and will sit this season out, he will be an inspirational leader on the sidelines. He was touted by head coach Joe Paterno, and duly rubber-stamped by the team. They would have voted him in, anyway. Shipley has been an outspoken leader throughout his career on the offensive line. Gaines is a mainstay on the defensive line and an outspoken media favorite. The Turkey thinks that these were good and fair choices.
