The Anti-Booster

As an antidote to that asshat CT Booster story, here's a link to a story about a NEPA resident and fan who died this week.  I think you will all like what he stood for.  Jay went to his funeral today.

One of the things I love most about the PSU fan base is looking around the stadium and knowing that so many people in there are blue collar guys like my Dad who got to attend a game maybe once a year.  They didn't go to Penn State. They didn't go to college, period.  But they loved Penn State.  They are the reason there are still over 100,000 fans at the Kent State game.  They probably got the ticket from a season ticket holder who didn't care to see Kent State, and they either gave the ticket away or sold it for below face (this is the reason I got to attend some games, before I got lucky and got access to season tickets and could afford to pay for them).  They don't care where their seat is.  Or how much the hot dog was, or that there was piped in music and that they had to listen to Sweet Caroline.  They thought it was all awesome.

So here's to you Lou Gatto, from Dunmore, PA.
