We Are... Penn State

2 years ago, on October 10, 2009, Chris took me to my first Penn State Football game.  I remember that Friday night I had just landed in Newark after being in Pittsburgh all week for work.  I had a horrendous migraine and I was exhausted.  I was not looking forward to immediately leaving on a 3 hour drive to Williamsport, PA (where we were staying over night).  Thankfully, Chris drove the whole way and let me sleep.

Saturday morning we got up and drove another hour to State College for the 12 noon game.  We had great weather and Penn State was killing Eastern Illinois.  Chris and I decided to leave the game a little early and he wanted to go to the Nittany Lion Statue for a picture.  Thank goodness my headache was gone, I had comfy shoes on, and the weather was nice, cause the walk was a long one.   When we got there, there were about 10 groups of people in front of us... not bad.   To my surprise, when it was our turn at the statue, after a few pictures Chris then got down on one knee and proposed!  Of course I said yes, and the rest is history.

Since then we have gone back to State College that October weekend for a football game.  And of course we go back to the Nittany Lion Statue for a picture.



This year we decided to try another angle... I think it worked out well :)

Besides making our annual trip to the statue, we of course went to the game.  This year Penn State was playing Iowa.  I think it's amusing that I have only ever gone to Penn State games where they are playing teams from states that start with the letter I...  Eastern Illinois, Illinois, Indiana, and now Iowa!

Penn State beat Iowa... 13-3!
