TETRA Anagrams To TREAT and TATER… What’s Next?

Update 3:07 p.m. Saturday: We’ve got another one. Retweet and follow @Onwardstate!

Update 7:26 a.m. Saturday: Tetra’s at it again! Whoever Matt is, he’s one lucky guy.

Original story: We’re a mere hour and a half into Penn State’s THON, and the popular organization TETRA has the crowd enthralled. Known for their large, light-up sign, the special interest organization has already begun stirring up trouble and switching their letters around.

So far we’ve seen TREAT…

and TATER…

The organization got creative and began making up their own word, TETR (Maybe the A-holder had to pee?):

Branching off into the three letter realm with EAT:

…and the ever-classic TETRA, of course.

What’s next for the organization?  We believe any of the following are valid possibilities.

RAT… as in, “Aw, RATs, I wasn’t here to see Misterwives take the stage for their surprise performance!”

ART… “There’s a real ART to balancing these heavy signs on your shoulders for 46 straight hours.”

and finally, TEAR… “Everyone in the BJC had a TEAR in his or her eye when the final total for THON 2018 was revealed.”

Stay tuned for further developments.
