Who Should The Nittany Lion Dress As Next?

Graphics produced by Rachel Padnis

I love many things about Penn State: golden sunsets behind Old Main, singing the Alma Mater in Beaver Stadium after a win, the buzz of downtown on Friday afternoons. But the thing I love most about Penn State is when the Nittany Lion wears clothes.

Sure, some looks are better than others, but the Lion just looks so damn respectable in a full ‘fit. So far this season, we’ve seen him strut his stuff as Freddie Mercury, Ferris Bueller, and Bob Ross, among other styilngs. While these getups were pretty solid, we think the Symbol of Our Best can do better. So, we compiled a list of people we think the Lion should dress as next.

Britney Spears

Oops!…The Nittany Lion did it again. I think the whole crowd would start acting up if the Lion stepped out in this spicy, red suit. You can’t tell me that he doesn’t look hot.

Joel Goodsen In “Risky Business”

The Nittany Lion is obviously no stranger to 80s comedies. His Ferris Bueller fit during the Villanova game was tough to beat, so why not pay tribute to another classic flick? Plus, “Old Time Rock & Roll” would definitely be a show-stopping number for the Symbol of Our Best. After all, this lion has moves.

DJ Pauly D

What a stud! The Lion sure does look good in a chain. Slap on some self-tanner, lather on a little bit of hair gel, and you won’t be able to tell the difference between the Nittany Lion and Paul DelVecchio himself.

Kim Kardashian

Cheers! Get this king in a corset immediately. Who said the Lion doesn’t care about having a snatched waist? I have one word: cake.

Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro

Speaking of cake, this one is my personal favorite. I can just picture the Lion down on the field whipping up a spectacular creation and yelling profanities at everyone in his general vicinity.


Well, folks, there you have it. Time after time, the Symbol of our Best proves that he is a Lion of many hats. There truly is not a ‘fit that he can’t rock. Period.
