2013-10-12 PSU vs UM, Brandon Felder scores the first touchdown of the game against Michigan; photo by Mike Pettigano For a while, my prediction to Seth was spot-on: Michigan 34, Penn State 24. But in reality, it looked far worse. There was still tons of time left in the game. After a thrilling leap to a double-digit lead, Penn State was falling behind, and falling quickly. Since it was getting late, and I had a 3.5-hour drive ahead of me, I’d get going. Penn State stopped the bleeding and cut the deficit to 7, but then a horrid pass interference call seemed to seal the deal for the Wolverines. I headed for the tunnel. Once I reached the media room, I found no one there to collect the photo/sideline vests. Heading back out to Jared in the south end zone, I figured he could turn it in for me when the game was over. Then it happened. Christian Hackenberg completed one, two, and one hell of a third pass down to the 1 yard line. “Ok, I guess I’ll stay.” Four overtime periods later, I wasn’t thinking about how I may have walked out on one of the greatest games in Penn State history. Three weeks later, as I’m typing this post, I do feel a bit of shame. I rarely–maybe 2 or 3 times ever–have left a game early. It pisses me off when people leave after the third quarter. But the chances for Hack to stage that kind of desperation drive were slim to none. Still, I shouldn’t have walked off the field. I guess I should thank Penn State for not stationing their athletics assistants before the game is officially over. Had there been someone to take my vest, I would have been halfway to the car by the time Penn State tied the game. Of course, media are allowed to re-enter the stadium. So maybe I would have turned back and finished the night anyway. Who knows? What I do know is that I got some pretty decent photos. Enjoy.
