Dressing down Nits for ridiculous T-shirt
TOM MAHON, Daily News Staff Writer mahont@phillynews.com Posted: Wednesday, September 4, 2013, 3:01 AM
ITS COME to this: Penn State has issued a T-shirt commemorating its 23-17 season-opening win over Syracuse.
We all know the Nits are doing whatever they can to boost a program that was hit hard by the Jerry Sandusky scandal. But selling a T-shirt (for $17.95, by the way) for beating a team that went 8-5 last season is a bit much. Even if it did take place at an NFL stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
The Nits have won 23 of the last 26 meetings with the Orange. And, at one point, won 16 in a row (from 1971 to 1986).
But marketing is everything, which explains this blurb about the shirt on the schools online store website: More coverageBuy local college sports tickets Latest college sports videos
Dominating the gridiron is what the Nittany Lions do best, and their win over the Orange on August 31st was no different! Relive their victory over Syracuse with this Score tee.
Dominating? Thats not the word wed use for a six-point win over Syracuse.
Fish story
Minnesota defensive lineman RaShede Hageman must have watched too much TV during Shark Week.
He was recently asked about what he likes to eat and came up with a rather bizarre reply.
Im definitely not a fish person, I dont like eating fish, just for the fact, like, I used to catch fish and they probably eat disgusting things in the water. I would eat a shark, though, because a shark kills a lot of people. So, I mean, if I eat a shark, I feel like Id be avenging a lot of peoples deaths or whatever. Sharks are so mean.TOM MAHONDaily News Staff Writer mahont@phillynews.com #post2 .pw-icon.ra1-pw-icon-reddit {background: url() 0px 0px no-repeat !important;width: 60px !important;height: 20px !important;margin-right:8px;}#post2 .pw-icon.ra1-pw-icon-email {background: url() 0px 0px no-repeat !important;width: 71px !important;height: 28px !important;}0commentsReprints & Permissions »
