Todd and I traveled to State College, PA to see Penn State play Northwestern and hopefully also see Joe Paterno win his 400th game. While watching the game I noticed a couple in the stands not far from where I was sitting and thought they might make an interesting pic. I tried to catch blur in the pom pom coat the boy was wearing without creating a blur of the two fans. This was as close as I got to what I wanted.

    Nice capture. Was glad to see Joe get #400, but what a nail biter. I met him in '84. What a gentleman.
