In presumably the last announcement relevant to Penn State prior to kick off on June 6, Raquel Rodriguez was named to Costa Rica's first Women's World Cup team. She will be the only current Nittany Lion participating this year (the US women feature PSU alum Ali Krieger), as such GoPSUSports follow her and her country's run from warm ups until it's conclusion. Julie Foudy isn't optimistic of Las Ticas' chances, Costa Rica is grouped with Brazil, South Korea, and Spain.

America's Pastime: If soccer is not your thing, Penn State baseball announced the collegiate summer league destinations of eight players. If you're in the area of the Cape Cod BaseballCal Ripken Collegiate BaseballGreat Lakes Summer CollegiateHamptons Collegiate BaseballNew England Collegiate BaseballNorthwoods, or Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball leagues, try and catch them.

How's the weather: had an article covering Penn State meteorology department on Sunday featuring both students and several notable alumni, as well as breakdowns of where graduates move onto after school.

Millen on the move: Matt Millen is reportedly leaving ESPN to become the lead football analyst at the Big Ten Network and provide college/NFL coverage at Fox Sports 1. Most people forget, as a simple internet search would confirm, before his disastrous stint as Detroit Lions GM, he was considered one of the top color guys in the NFL, and while he's hasn't recaptured that magic since his return to broadcasting, perhaps that had more to do with ESPN.

Women’s Rugby Dominate Again: Following yet another national championship in 15's, Penn State women's rugby added their first 7's title to their collection this past weekend in Denver.

Big Ten Previews: Bill Connelly is in the process of previewing all 128 teams for SB Nation and is currently marching his way through the Big Ten. Keep an eye out for Penn State to make their appearance later this week.

30 for 30 Short: There's a new 30 for 30 Short on the San Francisco Giant's mascot experiment in the 1984 season. This film is more of a lark, but still fascinating, especially in relation to the Philadelphia fan tales we all know so well. My favorite remains the heartbreaking Richard Jewell piece.
