There are but a precious few places where the forces of the college football universe can all align to create a special and resonant moment that touches the lives of thousands of people in hundreds of ways, uniting people of all different backgrounds - young and old, near and far away - in a shared appreciation of a unique American ritual. Luckily for all of us, Happy Valley is such a place, and for those of us fortunate enough to call ourselves Penn Staters, it is a second home that beckons strongest on Autumn Saturdays when the home team does battle for love and loyalty to Alma Mater beneath the watchful gaze of Old Mount Nittany. Whether you watched at home or from the stands, dressed all in white, you were treated to a beautiful four-quarter masterpiece that, at its conclusion, indelibly etched another memorable chapter into the already-legendary chronicles of Penn State football. We pause to appreciate it all, from the profane to the profound.
