I wanted to get Casey Anthony’s picture out of the featured position on this page and get back to Penn State football, which is a scant five weeks away. With all the crap going on in Washington, Norway, Libya, and Columbus, we could use a little Saturday respite to take our minds off the world’s woes.
By the way, speaking of Columbus, have you heard that at the behest of the NCAA, Terrell Pryor won’t be allowed to go anywhere near the Ohio State athletic department for at least five years? From star quarterback to pariah in a few simple transactions.
But I digress.
The NFL lockout is over, and there have been scads of free agent signings of all flavors since the green light was lit at 10 am Tuesday morning. Both veterans and undrafted free agents are out there waiting for phone calls. Thus far, the Penn Staters who have been signed include veteran Paul Pozluszny, who takes his considerable talent to Jacksonville, where he landed a six year deal. Poz would have rather stayed in Buffalo, but the Bills are going to a 3-4 defense this season, whereas the Jags play a 4-3, in which Poz will be middle linebacker. The rookie signings are Chris Colasanti and Ollie Ogbu (Indianapolis), Bani Gbdayu and Lou Eliades (Oakland), and Brett Bracket (Miami).
Wednesday should be a fun day, too.
