Just wanted to say thank you for everybody here at Black Shoe Diaries. I am a lifelong Nittany Lion fan born in PA who moved to Northern VA and unfortunately could not afford the out of state tuition to attend PSU (wanting to be a teacher and knowing what your salary will be will make you not want to be 130,000+ in debt). I found this site last season and have been a reader every day since I discovered it.
My big thank you goes to the members who post so frequently and give me the information I need to tell people the truth about this fine university. While the DC area has its share of Staters, it has a ton of people who are from all over the country and fans of all places, SEC, Big XII, ACC, you name it (not to mention the bandwagon people but that's another story). All of the information here has helped me to keep close to my roots and also helped me learn what to say to co workers and friends who may bash PSU, or be down on the B10, or just follow mainstream media.
Once again thank you and I know it is a long time until football season again but WE ARE
