Saturday, my wife, my 16-year-old daughter and I attended the Temple vs. Penn State football game at Lincoln Financial Field. Being the parent of a prospective college student, I was looking forward to experiencing “bit-time college football" in a big-time setting.
On the first day available, I purchased the most expensive seats available, the eastern corner of the end zone about 28 rows up. Imagine my surprise when near game time, the rows in front of us were transformed into the Temple student section. Students streamed in to the rows, without any preference for seat location. Initially, I thought that this would be fun for my 16 year old to see school spirit in action.
Ultimately, this is not a story of having overpaid for seats in which others paid less. We were treated to some exciting football. This is a story of pure classlessness among a group of similarly-aged people, ostensibly students at Temple University. Many were clad in red T-shirts that read " F- You, Penn State." OK, it wasn’t sanctioned as official NCAA fan attire, but there were too many not to notice.
