THON 2010 Live Blog

As Onward State is known for being on the cutting edge of event blogging, we have decided to get a head start on our peers and begin covering the events of THON 2010 as they happen at the Bryce Jordan Center.

8:59… Just got thrown out by security. Apparently our up-to-date blogging is “way too soon”. Typing outside of the BJC in the freezing cold. Guess we will have to wait 362 days to continue our live blog coverage of THON 2010!

8:55… Haven’t heard Metro Station at all tonight. Are their 15 minutes of fame up?

8:51… I’ve been here for almost an hour and have not seen a single hint of a line dance. This is troubling.

8:48… Getting pretty tired. I think I can find a place to lie down and take a nap…

8:43… Aren’t the Jonas Bros supposed to show up soon?

8:40… Centre Daily Times just showed up to do their THON 2009 coverage. Slowpokes!

8:36… Security is very lax this year. I think I can sneak onto the floor.

8:32… Tried to get some pictures for a slideshow, but it’s a complete ghost town in the BJC. What gives?

8:27… Getting some weird looks from security. They must not care about the kids.

8:22… No Collegian reporters in sight. Is 2010 truly the year of the death of print media?

8:18… Announcer just said that the Penn State basketball team will be here in a couple days.

8:15… The DJ has not shown up yet. It is completely silent in here, aside from a rustling sound here and there. Maybe they decided to not go with a DJ this year and donate that money FTK?

8:09… Isn’t there supposed to be a line dance soon?

8:04… The THON decorations this year are very sparse. I don’t see a single banner or anything yet!

8:01… Very surprising that no other bloggers are here, let alone dancers. C’mon, people! Only 8686 hours until THON!

7:58… No one is here yet except for me. The press box is very sparse compared to THON 2009
