Herb Hand Instigates State College Pizza War

It all started innocently enough. Penn State offensive line coach and prolific tweeter Herb Hand informed his 13,000 followers of his lunch choice this afternoon — a fresh slice of General Tso’s Canyon Pizza.

It was a freshman mistake. What followed was mass outrage, confusion, and shock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hand took the barrage of mentions in stride, but stood by his Canyon decision, going so far as to say that he’s ordering it for dinner. No one goes to Canyon twice in one day. No one.

Could a Herb Hand pizza tour be in the works?
