From Thon to State Patty's

My column today promotes pink over green, when it comes to this weekend's events.

But you know green will be popular, and here's an example why:

Thursday night while we were dining downtown the waitress, a Penn State sophomore, was still beaming about Thon. She spent like 32 hours there and was so proud of what the students accomplished. She said she hopes to dance in her senior year.

Asked about State Patty's, she switched gears abruptly and talked about how she has her green ready to wear. She'll be out, she said. Thon? Oh that's a great memory.

That tells you just a big about the allure of State Patty's, It's not going to be stopped. I applaud the efforts to counter it.
