Philly’s Taser-Boy Headed to Penn State

Monday afternoon at Citizens Bank Ballpark, something more unusual than the Phillies losing to the Cardinals took place. 17 year-old Steve Consalvi decided it would be a good idea to run out onto the field, just for the heck of it. That trip ended poorly for him when a Philadelphia police officer decided to go all University of Florida on his ass and Tasered him in shallow left field.

Besides being immensely humorous, you’re probably asking why this website is covering this. The answer is because Mr. Consalvi is “a real good student, heading to Penn State,” according to his father. So if you’ve ever wondered what a taser feels like, you can ask him in person.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
