"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

One Year Down...

You know what today is, right? Yep, it's the first birthday of this picture:

Hard to believe, isn't it? I'm not sure whether September 17th will end up being one of those dates we remember to mark with a quick tweet each year (or whatever it is people do when not on Twitter), but regardless, it's definitely worth noting this time.

Year one of Penn State NCAA hockey has been quite good to us, hasn't it? Consider that the following things didn't even exist (to us, obviously talks about some things took place before the press conference) until one year ago today, except located somewhere in a pipe dream.
I did not yet mention the best part of all: this coming year will be even better.
