I am an avid Penn State football fan. As of the PSU-Wisconsin game at Beaver Stadium on November 24, 2012, I attended 146 games in a row anywhere in the country that Penn State has played, and I have missed only 4 of the games played anywhere since 1990. My husband Terry attended every Penn State football game (282 in a row) since September 1990. However, in 2013 my husband's health problems forced us to cancel all away game trips, so the attendance streak has now ended.

In 1997 I became a marketing professor at the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University after a career in telecommunications. I credit this career change to Penn State football!

The opinions I express on this site are my own. They do not reflect the positions of Penn State, Penn State Athletics, or the Smeal College of Business.

I am no longer writing for Bleacher Report. If you wish to follow me you can view my full blog at www.viewfromstands.blogspot.com including my perspectives from being at every game.

    Carolyn, I have stopped contributing for the time being so I can focus on some other projects. I'm not shutting down my account though so I can leave the door open. If you follow me on Twitter you can easily find me!

    Thank you for your response, Carolyn! I just wanted to make sure that you had a good time in East Lansing.

    Go State!

    Do you enjoy yourself at Spartan Stadium? We are kind to PSU fans, in my opinion.

    I enjoy State College and Notre Dame Stadium. While I'm in Columbus, I lay low and actually wear OSU gear. I rent a car in Toledo, OH--just so I don't have MI plates.

    PSU is an awesome experience. I hope you have fun in East Lansing.

    Go State!
