    “Did you know there is a Nittany Lion weathervane at Beaver Stadium?”

    – Shouldn’t the weathervane be of a beaver instead?

    “Pitt and Syracuse played in Yankee Stadium yesterday, and a really fantastic logo was created”

    – I’m curious if New Yorkers/Yankees fans find celebrating a 100th anniversary of a new stadium as ridiculous as I do?

    “If you don’t like the relaxed look of today’s NBA coaches”

    – “Relaxed” is being way too kind. “Lazy” and “unprofessional” are way more appropriate. Baseball and football are played outside, so I’m much more forgiving. Why has the NBA allowed this to continue from the bubble games during Covid?

    The Montreal Alouettes will be the home team in the Grey Cup as the game is in an East Division city (Hamilton). It has been sometime since a team has worn an alternate jersey in a Grey Cup game. Curious to see if the league will give them the green light to wear the red alternates.

    The Penn State weather vane was donated by the founder of Accuweather, a Penn State alumnus and former Board of Trustees member.

    I see still Washington Football Team balloons in my Alexandria, Va. grocery store – probably because they have been waiting since 2020 for somebody to buy them. That mylar seals pretty tight and there hasn’t been a lot of enthusiasm for the local NFL team for much longer. It’s picking up though, now that Dan Snyder is gone. I see some new gear when I’m out and about.

    Yeah those Grizzly unis are actually pretty freakin cool…
    …not sure why cancer awareness would be controversial in today’s NHL, tho…..

    Brooklyn is joining USL League One.

    And I believe those snooker uniforms are a new development. Snooker players have traditionally worn dress shirts and waistcoats; like tennis, it’s been a sport of narrowly constrained personal dress.

    Was there any explanation for the no soccer shirts rule at the concert? My guess would be fear of hooligan-style fighting…
