The concern is that if the volcano erupts it could disrupt air travel to Europe just like in 2010 with another Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull (seriously, Iceland?), and over 10,000 flights to and from Europe were canceled due to the resulting ash spewed into the atmosphere. Penn State is currently scheduled to fly to Ireland on Tuesday Aug. 26, and the school is aware of the possible eruption.
So what would happen if the volcano does erupt and cancels the game? I don’t know. I’m guessing the game would be postponed to another time and played somewhere in the United States, possibly in Happy Valley, or maybe in Orlando.
A volcano though?
Hopefully the volcano doesn’t erupt, it would ruin a sick day and would really suck for everyone making a trip out of this game.
8:30am start time for everyone staying in Penn State — or in Philly with Made In America — makes for a pretty sweet drinking day. Don’t even both trying to sleep Friday night.
Look, I’m not one to bitch and moan over calls but this dude was atrocious. It was brutal. So bad, Karl Ravech had to mention it on the air. Dude’s strike zone was all over the place.
Anyway, no excuses. This is exactly what we needed to happen if Taney is going to win it all. Need to face adversity, get the loss out of the way, beat Chicago tonight and zero chance Las Vegas beats us again. Two in a row is tough in Little League.
Ps. Didn’t think our coach did a great. Guy has to score from third on double play, gotta be more aggressive on bases, especially as a big underdog and the home team late in the game.
Pps. Eric Lipson is by far my favorite player, ever

PS – The guy in jean shorts knows how to dominate a Sunday.
PPS – How much do you think Alfonso Ribeiro got paid to show up in State College on a Sunday in the middle of summer? I honestly have no idea how much that would cost. A couple thousand? Should we get him to show up at the next TSP party in AC? Might have to.
Was that the worst or was that the worst? Ugh. It’s why we love sports, but what a killer moment. Fado, Fox N Hound, and all of center city in Philly was nutty. We were about to run the streets. 30 seconds, literally. Ugh. Shoot me in the face.
We better get through or we’ll never forget that Portugal goal, for all the wrong reasons.
Now, you got to take every Howard Eskin tweet with a grain of salt, but a tweet is a tweet. Obviously people are talking about this and honestly, I can’t think of a possible better situation for a sporting event…ever.
I don’t think I love a rivalry more than Flyers / Penguins in all of sports and I KNOW I don’t love a stadium more than Beaver Stadium. This would sell out before you could say, ‘Sidney Crosby is a little girl.’
Honestly, is there another sporting event that could top this for Flyers/Penguins/Penn State fans? Maybe Eagles v. Steelers at Beaver Stadium, but an NHL game at Beaver Stadium is a million times cooler. It’s historic. Make it happen.
