A Call to Arms

Friends, Nittany Lions, State College residents, lend me your ears. In this short time during which we inhabit this earth, it is seldom asked of us to partake in a venture so grand, something so much larger than any individual, that it could define our very existence. Today is one of those days. The U.S. News and World Report is once again holding a contest to determine the best alternative media outlet of 2009. We, the defending champions, are one of the four nominees, and while Onward State currently leads in the polls, it’s a close race.

If you’ve read and enjoyed Onward State this year, if you’ve stuck by us through 2009, and if you love Penn State, it is your obligation to go vote. If that’s not enough for you, the blog that is currently in second is the blog of Mark Titus, a basketball player from…OHIO STATE! By this point I assume that you’re sufficiently riled up, and want to know how you can help. Well, just go to this link where you can vote for Onward State as many times as you want. Right now you clearly have nothing important to do (you’re spending your time reading a blog), so go to the website and vote once, twice, fifty, a hundred times.

Remember, ask not what Onward State can do for you, but what you can do for Onward State

The Future of Footwear Comes to Penn State

A new fad has hit Penn State, one that threatens to be greater than Pogs, Pokemon, and Yo-yos combined. They make you feel like Buzz Aldrin, and make Sketchers’ ShapeUps look conservative.  I’m referring, of course, to Kangoo Jumps (KJs). Already rumored to be featured on the Richard Simmons comeback exercise video (full disclosure: the author started this rumor…right now), Kangoo Jumps are taking State College by storm, in all their goofy glory.
