With the change of the seasons, the sun setting in the early afternoon, and obligatory family time creeping up, it becomes easier to fall into less productive habits and mindsets. Succumbing to these obstructive behaviors may feel more comfortable in the moment, but they are digressions along the path. These may be easier choices, but that doesn't make them the right.
Each October spectators from far and wide gather at State College, Pennsylvania, for the spectacle which is Penn State's “White Out” football game. Hordes of people of all ages wander across Downtown, making their way towards Beaver Stadium. Most groups carrying their choice case of beer or malt drink to enjoy at whichever tailgate they end up. Happy Valley is a cult. A fun cult, but a cult nonetheless.
