Bama-PSU: Returning the praise

Mark Lent sent us a letter, published today, praising Penn State fans. He and his son parked cars Saturday in Tuscaloosa to benefit Boy Scout Troop 90, and the lot was reserved for Penn Staters.

It was a great experience, he said, and called the Penn Staters "the most awesome fans we have ever had the opportunity to work with."

It was a great letter in print but it's even better online, as the organizer of that alumni tailgate, Kelly-Jean E. Erwin, of the Penn State Club of Atlanta, posted a comment returning the praise.

We've heard a good bit of mutual admiration between Alabama and Penn State fans, and this is the latest example.

Thanks to both Lent for writing the letter and to Erwin for reading us and contributing online. Those of us who didn't make the trip have a good picture of what took place.
