The sky was a deep blue today; clouds as white as the majestic helmet of our beloved Nittany Lions. There is a strong chance we could see the same backdrop this Saturday during the Blue-White Game.
I'll be there. Many of us will. It's an exciting time to be a Penn state fan. All the bullshit is (mostly) behind us. The new coach has us all clawing over one another to climb aboard the bandwagon.
You've likely also seen references and blog posts here about our second annual Penn State preview magazine -- We Are! 2014. Some of you were backers of We Are! 2013. And as far as I can tell, you were all happy with the return on your investment.
Now is the time when I'm calling on all of you to help us. If we cannot reach our funding goal, the magazine will not happen this year. And with Blue-White Weekend just days away, this is the perfect time to throw some gas on this fire.
Please spread the word. Our best chance of success depends on word-of-mouth among the PSU faithful. That's you... and me... and the other 60,000 fans heading to State College this weekend. Think about it this way: we only need 0.05 percent of this week's game attendance in order to fully fund We Are! 2014.
Show everyone your copy of last year's magazine as proof that what we are offering is unlike anything you've read before. Or view an abbreviated copy of We Are! 2013 here, which includes the positions and opponents previews, and some of the features.
This isn't the last you'll hear from me. And it's hopefully not he last I'll hear from all of you. Start talking to your fellow Penn Staters.
And of course, WE ARE!
Update: I was going to just do this myself once I got into SC Friday, but in case anyone is interested in helping out, we have flyers and a poster available for download. However, please do not litter or get us in trouble. Only put these on public bulletin boards or with permission anywhere else!
