When 6-foot-5 former Penn State volleyball star Blair Brown went club-hopping a while back with 6-4 Nebraska All-American Brooke Delano and three other very tall young women, they weren’t exactly shy about their height.

It’s interesting that NOW there is outrage in State College about actions that are “unfair to the kids.” The harsh NCAA sanctions against the Penn State football program are indeed unfair to the student-athletes.

They had absolutely nothing to do with Jerry Sandusky’s crimes or the massive, 14-year-long cover-up perpetrated by those in charge of the university. The sanctions are extremely unfair.<

Jerry Sandusky will never see the light of day as a free man. That’s the first good news out of central Pennsylvania in a long time. That news is a credit to the 12 men and women of Bellefonte, PA, who acted as good American citizens by serving on the jury that convicted him.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
