Buccigross Gives THON Trademark ‘Bucci Star’ on SportsCenter

A day after raising $13,026,653.23, THON made an appearance on SportsCenter this morning.

ESPN’s John Buccigross, who attended the 46-hour dance marathon after Friday night’s men’s hockey game, gave Penn State students, and the event itself, his trademark ‘Bucci Star’ on the network’s flagship program.

“I spent some time there Friday night, and what an indelible experience and performance that it was,” he said on SportsCenter. “[It] was an experience that I’ll never forget.”

He then raised his right arm to show his THON wristband as a further seal of gratitude.

These editorial remarks, of course, come only one month after the same network’s Keith Olbermann lambasted Penn State on his program, giving the university the “World’s Worst in Sports” distinction, and saying that Penn State’s legacy will be that “football was more important to them than saving children.”

Think again, Keith, and thank you Buccigross for making the trip to State College this weekend.
