Legion Of Blue VP Pied In The Face Live On Television

Update Friday 6:59 p.m.  Andrew Flatley was featured on this week’s edition of SportsCenter’s Not Top Ten. His dramatic pie-to-the-face on live television during Penn State’s basketball game against Michigan Wednesday night came in at No. 2.

Original story: Penn State men’s basketball dropped a tough 72-63 decision to No. 17 Michigan on senior night at the Bryce Jordan Center. Although the Wolverines held a lead for most of the evening, Penn State’s fans — including Legion of Blue Vice President Andrew Flatley — clearly had a great time at the game.

Flately snuck into the background of the Big Ten Network’s live shot during a break in the action, sitting down right in between the network’s commentary team. He then took a cream pie to the face on national television and received plenty of airtime as a result.

ESPN’s Twitter and Instagram accounts featured the incident with extremely fitting captions. You’re right, ESPN. Some people will truly do anything to get on TV. Even if  “anything” includes telling your friend to pie you in the face and then acting shocked once it happens.

BTN had some fun with it too.

Flatley quickly caught wind of his 15 seconds of fame and shared his own reaction on Twitter.

Pat Chambers’ squad can bounce back from Wednesday night’s tough loss in its regular season finale on Sunday. Penn State takes on Nebraska on the road at 5:15 p.m. to wrap up its regular season slate.

Even if the Nittany Lions didn’t peak this season, at least Andrew Flatley did. Here’s hoping he got the whipped cream out of his nose somehow.
