Penn State football coach Joe Paterno says you can usually expect to see the most improvement between Week 1 and Week 2 of a new season.
We agree -- when it comes to the Nittany Lions and the FightOnState.com Friday Tailgate.
A new Happy Valley tradition on home football weekends, the FOS Friday Tailgate debuted last week to strong reviews, as more than 100 people stopped by the Lion's Den in downtown State College to mingle with former players, FOS staffers, media types and other PSU fans.
This despite the event going head-to-head with Football Eve.
We're shooting for bigger and better things this week, as host Keith Conlin and crew will be back at The Den from 6 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Conlin is a former All-Big Ten offensive linemen for the Lions.
Be sure to stop by. The Den now has a great sandwich menu and will once again be offering $1 Miller Lite drafts during the FOS Tailgate. There are banks of HD televisions, and indoor and outdoor seating areas.
Last week, Conlin and former Lion fullback Dan Lawlor were among the Nittany Lion lettermen to appear early in the tailgate. Former star tailback Ki-Jana Carter showed up a little later.
Who will be on hand this week? You never know who will stop by. However, you can ALWAYS count on having a good time at the FightOnState.com Friday Tailgate.
The Lion's Den is located at 118 South Garner Street in downtown State College. We look forward to seeing you there.
