"I felt we made a mistake in building a baseball field. I thought that should have been the ice skating rink, because I think hockey in this state right now, not just hockey, but ice skating, if you come up to our office building at 6:00 in the morning, some mornings you can't get a parking spot because parents have taken their kids up here to skate...I think hockey will be a great addition to our intercollegiate program. [The Pegula gift] is a great, great gift. And I think very far-sighted and I'm really pleased with it." - Joe Paterno

Note: This is NOT a Pegula Ice Arena rendering. It's the Branson (MO) Convention Center, which shares an architect with the PIA (Crawford Architects) and has a giant wall of windows "facing Mt. Nittany."
