our team always wins


In three hours, Penn State is going up against Ohio State.

We are….

I have had a down morning, until I remember what’s like at tail gate parties: blue-and-white everywhere, strangers cheering you up  and Joe P our god eternal.

My spirit is always lifted when the marching band runs into the stadium to lead the way for the rest of the team.

We learn about team loyalty, competitive spirit and “reset” mindset (nice try, defense!).

The alumni kept coming back, many with season tickets.

Happy Valley was indeed a happy place especially on home-game weekends.

Despite the ups and downs of my post-college years, Nittany Lion has a special place in my heart.

All positive.

Practice, practice, practice.

Players are to show up in class as well (even though they napped in Speech classes).

Mind over body.

Team over individual.

Winning is not everything. It’s the only thing.

We are…. Penn State.

It’s a microcosm of a larger universe, called America.

Lose not the competitive spirit, team spirit and grace in defeat.

For me, our team always wins, because We are…..
