It's not every Saturday that Sea Isle's bars are open and serving big crowds at 8:00 am, but they sure were today. In fact you could here "We Are ... Penn State" all over the downtown bar area this morning. And when Penn State locked the 2 point victory with a last second Tom Ficken field goal the crowds went wild. Soon after, almost every shirt on Landis Ave was Blue and White.
There were also quite a few Penn State morning tailgates and game parties in garages through out Sea Isle. In fact I attended a great PSU party this morning in my neighbor's garage. (After a couple of cups of coffee to wake up.) The crowd was fired up and although it wasn't quite like being in Dublin, the plasma TV mounted on the garage wall was the next best thing.
I hope this becomes a Penn State tradition because it is a great way to kick off Labor Day weekend in Sea Isle.
