Reilly-Vermeil Switcharoo

You may have heard that ESPN Magazine Columnist Rick Reilly won’t be visiting us here at University Park for the SPA Distinguished Speaker Series anymore. Apparently, Tiger’s appearance at the Masters is a bigger deal. Reilly did try to work out a new time for his speech, but his busy schedule and the looming end of the semester have put the kibosh on an appearance this year.

The SPA began working vigorously to find a suitable replacement for Reilly on such short notice, and they found one in former football coach and sportscaster Dick Vermeil. Vermeil has been both a collegiate and NFL coach. He is perhaps most famous for resurrecting the Eagles franchise in late 1970s and was even portrayed in the 2006 Marky-Mark film Invincible. After retiring and coming out of retirement several times, Vermeil set his sights on broadcasting. Recently, he designed a program to help retired athletes and coaches get into the biz.

The event will be in Eisenhower Auditorium at 8pm on April 20th. Ticket distribution begins April 6th (April 13th for the general public), and the tickets are free with a PSU ID.

Kiwi Fro-Yo Comes to Penn State

The Kiwi Yogurt chain is opening its newest store right here in State College, next to the Student Book Store at 324 E. College Ave, this February (no word yet on exact date). Kiwi is a Maine Line, Pa.-based, family-owned company founded in 2008 set on providing “the ultimate dessert experience.”

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
