|Wow, talk about a difference in perspective:
I am just excited to actually get the chance to visit Philadelphia for the first time in my life and see the Linc (Lincoln Financial Center) for the first time after seeing it on television for Eagles games (Sorry Owls).
From the Collegian:
'This weekend's game between Penn State and Temple is slated to be the biggest home game in the history of the Owls' football program, said the school's director of ticket operations, Owen Godfrey.'
This did crack me up though:
'Every day this week, Cherry Crusaders will be stationed at various places on campus, selling buttons that say, "We aren't Penn State."'Yeah, its obvious you aren't, the biggest game in the HISTORY of your football program is against a Penn State team who's not ranked in 2 out of 4 polls and who's fans will definitely white out the Linc like we did to the Orange Bowl in 2005. The Miami Herald the next day plastered a front page image of the stadium in White and called it a "Northern Invasion". So I'm glad you are excited Owl fans, but so are we, Nittany Nation is poised to invade your city for a weekend. Just make sure to chant your name real loud, the television audience might wonder why Beaver Stadium looks different. It shall be fun.
