The Penn State Mascot likes to get his drink on

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on December 2, 2008

It’s been a rough couple of years for the Penn State football team, at least when the subject of arrests is brought up.

James Sheep is a senior at Penn State and is also the Nittany Lion mascot. Last Saturday Sheep proved he can be a member of the football team by getting arrested for driving under the influence.

Maybe the Sheep was a little too excited about winning the Land Grant Trophy and going to the Rose Bowl, but that doesn’t explain why not only he chose to be an idiot and drive while intoxicated but also he was playing overcrowded taxi as well.

The officer who made the stop saw that the vehicle was overloaded, with passengers piled onto each other and blocking the driver’s view.

Now I’m sure the other passengers were perfectly alright to drive. *Sarcasm*

He was arrested at 3:15 AM on Saturday morning, leaving plenty of time to go through the booking process and make bail. Didn’t anyone notice he had a hangover for the game?

It will be up to JoePa on whether Sheep travels to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. No word of ESPN’s Outside the Lines is planning a follow-up.

In fairness to the Lion, the final home football game means now he has to pull duty at PSU basketball games. I’d be drinking too.

Brent Musburger offers a glimpse inside the mind of Joe Paterno and manages to depress me. What a kill joy.

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 16, 2008

Yesterday I was listening to the Dan Patrick show on the radio. One of Patrick’s guests for the day was ABC sports caster Brent Musburger. He was on the show to discuss college football. Now personally I’m not a fan of Musburger or Patrick for that matter but it beats listening to Top 40 crap and the local Gamecock homers that are on the other stations here in Columbia.

Musburger decided to depress the listening audience. While admitting to having a personal friendship with JoePa and through the power of “candid” conversations Musburger offered the following glimpse inside the mind and life of JoePa:

“This is a tough one for me because I have to say up front that JoePa is a dear friend of mine…I’ll tell your listeners the truth as to why he still does it. He is fearful – and he looks back at Bear Bryant as the example – he is fearful that he would not be with us if he stepped away. He is a man that doesn’t fish, doesn’t play golf…he has no other interest other than his family and football. And he’s just afraid what would happen with the rest of his life if he walks away from it.”

Remember this isn’t Musburger analyzing but rather JoePa admitting he fears dieing once he retires. It should be noted that while I’m not a fan of Penn State I am a fan of JoePa. This could be a brilliant negotiation ploy by JoePa’s agent. Get that man a raise.

If you think about it JoePa might be on to something here. After all Behr Bryant died just 28 days after announcing his retirement from Alabama.

So it’s understandable. If I gave up writing, I’m pretty sure I’d die or, even worse, get some work done. Charlie Weis feels the same way about that fourth whole turkey that JoPa feels about football.

If Brent Musburger walked away from announcing, I think some of us would live longer, or just breathe easier.
