Catch our Friday afternoon ChatCast at Old State and Friday evening Happy Hour at THE Lion's Den. Note a later start time for ChatCast this week.


Listen to the exclusive FOS ChatCast Friday at 1 p.m. (or so) Eastern. Please note we are starting an hour or so later than usual this week.

We'll give you plenty to chew on, as Mark Brennan, Penn State sports historian Lou Prato, Pat Boland and a cast of dozens do their online radio show from Old State Clothing in downtown State College.

The show starts at 1 p.m. and goes until … well … we run out of stuff to discuss. Previous guests on the ChatCast include Todd Blackledge, Michael Robinson, Jay Paterno, Tim Shaw, Jordan Norwood, Guido D'Elia, Anthony Scirrotto, Kim Herring, Blair Thomas and a bunch of other interesting people.

Anyone can listen to the ChatCast online. We'll post a link on our primary message board 15 minutes or so before it is scheduled to kick off.

If you are a TAP member, you can ask questions in real time by using the Chat function on our premium forum.

We will start streaming music at this link, and then transition into the show around 1 p.m.

And if you are in town, stop by.

Get to Old State.


A message board called the “Lion's Den?” Please.

As anyone who ever attended Penn State can tell you, there is only one true “Lion's Den.” It is the legendary bar on Garner Street in downtown State College.

And for the past two years, it has been the site of the FOS Friday Happy Hour. We're back at the real Den in 2008, too. will be at The Den on all Penn State football Fridays this season, arriving at 6 p.m. and hanging out at least until 8 p.m. Brennan, Boland and Rob Riva are scheduled to attend. We think Riva may actually make it this time. ;)

This is an extremely informal affair, a chance to put screen names to faces, enjoy great deals on drink and food, and talk Nittany Lion football. Stop by this week and say hello.

Get to The Den.
