Mike left Nathan with me and went to his uncle's house to watch the big game. Penn State beat Michigan State to win the Big 10 Championship! It was very exciting. Then Mike called me to ask if he and Ron could go to State College for a welcome back rally for the team. I reluctantly said yes, because it was a late night and a lot of driving for them. But they had a great time. The rally was at the old basketball arena/gym and the cheerleaders and Blue Band helped the crowd celebrate a great season. Then the team arrived off the plane from East Lansing and the captains gave little speeches. They carried the Big 10 trophy in and the crowd went wild. Finally JoePa gave a little speech and then said "this old man is going to bed." Mike got home around 1:30 in the morning. I'm sure it was a fun time.
