NEW YORK — Since at least the mid 1990s, Pepsi cans sold by food carts in Manhattan have always said NEW YORK. I don’t recall seeing this in any other city. Granted the other cities that tend to buy from food carts are Washington and Arlington (actually a county, of course) so I can’t speak to say Boston or Chicago, but I have a feeling its just a New York thing. Why don’t other cities do it?
By the way, a Sabrett and a can of Pepsi is a requirement of any trip to New York for me.

BOB FLOUNDERS – Paterno not pleased with development of Penn State offensive line – Patriot-News
Nittany Lions beat reporters are not taking Joe Paterno’s comments about the offensive line being in trouble very seriously and neither should we…yet.
BOB FLOUNDERS – Jared Odrick the biggest, best part of Penn State’s defensive line – Patriot-News
DT Jared Odrick‘s motto “Taking the fight to them.” He also makes the offensive line better because they have to practice against him.

Sue Paterno more than coach’s wife at Penn State – AP/NBC Sports
A Sue Paterno profile. Every time I see the “if they can find a coach’s wife like Sue” line from Joe in regards to succession plans, I feel bad for Tom Bradley.
It is going to be a busy week of Penn State football coverage! An outline of the schedule:
TUESDAY: Last week’s Beano Watch
WEDNESDAY: Blue White Roundtable
THURSDAY: Season Predictions
FRIDAY: Chat at noon, right here. I’m going to have an open forum to discuss Penn State football every Friday at lunch. I’ll get a Cover-It-Live reminder widget set up soon.
I will also post more as time allows. I’m still not sure if I am going to the game, but I should know tonight.

NEW YORK — When I was student at Penn State Hazleton, many of us often passed an intersection that had a “WAIT FOR GREEN” sign next to a traffic light in West Hazleton. Obviously, this from the Redundant Department of Redundancy Department, so we we made fun of the borough of West Hazleton/PennDot for posting it. As much as I like New York, I have to poke fun at them now too.
Maybe next time, they’ll post the more appropriate DELAYED GREEN sign and spare themselves my mockery.
Nationals’ Mock Pitches Well but Falls Short – The Post
Riggleman, Nats pay for poor decision – The Wash. Times
For the second time in three games, the Nationals got solid starting pitching only to fall in St. Louis to the Cardinals. Yesterday, Garrett Mock gave up two runs over six innings, but the Nationals offense could only muster one run. On Friday evening, John Lannan pitched eight innings of 2-run ball, his best start since the beginning of the month, but Albert Pujols ended it with a homer in a 3-2 Washington loss. Oh and in the MASN doesn’t do anything right ever, they didn’t show MissChatter‘s “Lannan vs. Smoltz” commercial, even though that was the pitching matchup. Fargin iceholes.
Saturday’s game, a 9-4 loss, was more typical with Craig Stammen walking batters and giving up long homers, Cristian Guzman booting grounders and so on.
Belliard Is Now A Dodger – The Post
Belliard shipped to Dodgers for a pair of pitchers – The Wash. Times
IF Ronnie Belliard is no longer a National — he was traded to the Dodgers for 22 year-old Luis Garcia, a single-A pitcher. Let’s hope he is a late bloomer. A pitcher to be named later will be sent for Belliard later.
I’m glad they got something for Belliard. He was a solid bench player during his 2+ seasons in D.C. Justin Maxwell has been called up to take his roster spot. Pete Orr is back too.
Pitching Phenom Arrives – The Post
Making a good impression – The Wash. Times
Stephen Strasburg was surprised by the fuss his first pro workout generated with several reporters watching him throw and learn how to field his position. Frankly, Strasburg, media attention comes with the territory of being a #1 pick who signed a record contract. You have $15+ million reasons to prepare yourself for this sort of thing.
TRACEE HAMILTON – Nats’ Other First-Rounder Is Beginning to Emerge From Strasburg’s Shadow – The Post
I missed this Friday column about the Nats other 2009 first-rounder, Drew Storen.
