Enough With the Facebook Events Already

All eyes will be on Beaver Stadium this weekend as the Nittany Lions attempt to defeat Northwestern and give JoePa his 400th career win. If you’ve paid attention to your newsfeed lately, you’ve seen a few events popping up in an attempt to make this weekend more special.  Here are some of the ones we found that you may or may not be attending (in order of relevance):

Roll Up Your Pant Legs for JoePa’s 400th Win
This is basically all you need to know since the description of the event is the same as the title. The beauty of it is that if no one else is doing it, you can nonchalantly roll your pant legs down. That way you avoid looking like a jackass for wearing a white sheet. Sorry, wrong event.

JoePa Tie Out
We have come to a point where adding “Out” to any proposed student section dress code makes as much sense as adding “State” to every fake drinking holiday. Anyway, the goal of this event is to “get as many people as possible to wear ties to the game in the student section.” Wouldn’t it be way cooler and unbelievably frightening if everyone wore the paper JoePa masks they sell at McLanahan’s instead?

DOUBLE WAVE (Penn State vs. Northwestern)
A double wave is certainly no double rainbow. Apparently, Notre Dame pulled off some kind of double wave back in mid-October, and, in classic Penn State spirit, someone declared we must do it to and show everyone how great we are, yada yada yada. The event posts this video to get you excited about wanting to do it, but it’s extremely difficult to make out anything worthwhile. It’s a sad day when a stadium-wave needs to start as a Facebook event.

After the wild success of the “Ghost Out” let’s see how well these pan out.
