CBSSports - Yes, it seems that there’s been increased volcanic activity in Iceland, and there are concerns a volcano called Bárðarbunga could erupt. Do not ask me how to pronounce it because I have no idea.
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.
