Yeah Boy! Flavor Flav Attends Penn State Basketball Game

The Bryce Jordan Center was graced with the presence of a very special guest Saturday afternoon: Flavor Flav.

The 55 year-old rapper, actor, and television personality attended the game against Purdue to watch his cousin, freshman point guard Shep Garner, play 35 minutes and score five points.

Rumors of Flav’s presence began circling in the first half, when a clock-wearing man was named the Fan of the Game on the Jumbtron. Then, social media broke loose when James Franklin posted a photo of himself with the esteemed entertainer.

At first, it was unclear why Flav paid a visit to State College. But he soon tweeted that Garner’s his cousin, and his decision to come was “verry wise.”

Garner wasn’t available for questions following the game. Coach Patrick Chambers, when asked a question that included Flav’s presence, didn’t address him specifically, electing instead to praise the crowd and atmosphere it provided.

Flav, who often yells “Yeah Boy!” at any seeming circumstance, then made his way to the student section during an overtime period that saw the Nittany Lions get blown out by the Boilermakers.

After the loss, he stayed on the court, meeting with Garner, his family, and fans.

Flav’s attendance is welcome anytime, though the Penn State basketball team is currently 0-1 when he’s here.
