The Dog Days of August?

August 22, 2007 · Filed Under The Fan 

First off, let me make you a promise.  The Fan will be making more posts about the season this year than before.  We work hard at keeping this website working as a place for our group and others to find good quality tailgating information and The Fan needs to do more to keep that content fresh.  Whether it’s interesting or not, who really cares.  I just need to write more. 

From the Parking Lot:

August is one of those months that just annoy me.  It’s usually too hot to do a damn thing, you are alwyas trying to fit in that last summer activity.  But this past week has been different.  It’s been almost fall like.  And you know what fall means to guys like me?  Tailgating and football.  It also means weddings, but we won’t even go there.

All summer long Penn State football has been in the news for all the wrong reasons, all of which involve alchohol.  But the story lines are turning back to where they belong, recruiting and on the field action.  There seems to be a quiet confidence brewing around the 2007 squad.  Maybe not a remarkable season kind of confidence, but a “hey maybe we’ve really got a shot at doing something great this year kind of confidence.”  I guess we’ll find out soon.

Until next time, S-T-A-T-E Go State!
