‘AnTHONy’s’ Weirdest Tweets From THON 2020

Staff writer Anthony Fiset served as a special THON correspondent for Onward State throughout THON 2020.

Instead of hanging out on press row, however, Mr. Fiset danced in the stands of the Bryce Jordan Center for all 46 hours of THON. In addition to our normal @THONwardState tweets, we also had him tweet from the account and sign his tweets as “anTHONy.”

Whether he was updating the Twitter world on his footwear or scarfing down delicious BJC hot dogs, anTHONy did tweeted a little bit of everything at THON. Here are the best posts he rattled off throughout the weekend:

When you’re on your feet for 46 hours, ibuprofen is a godsend in every sense of the word.

Is… is there any connection between My Hero Zero, the Jonas Brothers, and Paris? Did sleep deprivation drive anTHONy to pull conspiracy theories out of thin air?

And then there was anTHONy’s great hot dog conquest. He finished the weekend with a total of 15 hot dogs consumed — some of which were donated by our generous staffers and alumni.

Top moments of THON 2020:
5. Men’s gymnastics winning the pep rally
4. Daya’s surprise concert
3. Cash Cash’s surprise concert
2. Total reveal
1. S A X S O L O

A huge part of surviving 46 hours of no sitting or sleeping is taking care of your feet. Thankfully, anTHONy did so in style — and documented it for the whole world to see, of course.

Three water socials later…

The fiddle should be a THON staple: change my mind.

anTHONy capped off his weekend filled with fatigue, hot dogs, and general electricity on a wholesome note. Congrats to everybody involved with THON on a phenomenal weekend at the Bryce Jordan Center!

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
