Nittany Lions take the Orange Bowl

My father-in-law, a Penn State alum and the biggest PSU fan you'll meet, invited us to his hotel on January 4 to watch the Orange Bowl. For some, nothing marks the new year like a bowl game, and for many, bowl games are primarily about the chips and beer. For this game, Budweiser, Guiness, and Sam Adams just wouldn't do. Notice we're drinking Rolling Rock, brewed in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, just a few miles from Penn State.

While passing time in front of a football game isn't my favorite activity, the game was a true nail biter. Both teams kept missing field goals (four altogether!) and the game went into triple overtime. Fortunately for us, Penn State came out on top and we can feel confident that all will be well as we enter the new year.
