“We Are Penn State” is a chant heard at all the school’s sporting events, especially during Saturday football games at Beaver Stadium. It can also be heard around campus at just about any time and it’s not unusual for students and alumni to use those three words to close a conversation or even an email.
There are not a lot of quotes from my father that I steal on a regular basis with one notable exception….”the worst thing about getting older is you know more people who die.” It’s not a brilliant quote but it is certainly factual as we all all get up there in years.
I know there are many who believe far too much attention is paid to sports but I have always said that at its best sports serves as such a positive way to escape the reality of everyday life. The latest example of that would be the Giants unlikely run which has them just one win away from the Super Bowl.
When your children are younger life revolves around their daily schedules, going from place-to-place at a frantic pace you long for the days when things will slow down. You look at that calendar on the refrigerator along with school and sports schedules and wonder if you’re a parent or just a taxi driver. You never think long-range but rather just try and get through the challenges each day will bring as you try and juggle schedules to make sure at least one of you will be at each of your children’s must-attend events. Then it all ends and you wonder where did the time go?
Today is the 43rd anniversary of what remains my worst day as a sports fan and the best day in the history of the New York Jets. It was on this date in 1969 when the Jets stunned the heavily-favored Baltimore Colts to win Super Bowl III in Miami.
This is my first official segment of the New Year and it’s good to be back after a few days off. Actually I hated the sound of the alarm buzzing at 2:50 this morning as I had gotten accustomed to staying up late and sleeping late but as the saying goes, “all good things must come to an end.”
