As we are in full throttle for the holiday shopping season with “Black Friday” being the official opening day for this up and coming sport, I have been mulling over the best gifts to give as well as receive for the sports fan and the fan of the kitchen. Over the next month, I will share gifts and treats that will please all of my readers.

The first gift I received this holiday… my beloved Penn State having a very successful football season showing America “We Are”…..with all of the pessimism swirling around our program and concerns that the distractions would simply be too great to overcome…. PSU remained undaunted and stayed true to the success we are accustom. A big Kudos to Bill O’Brien for the amazing job he did this year!!! And as a cherry on top, he won the honor of  “Big Ten Coach Of The Year”

Congrats…..Bill O’Brien
