College football is a sport that can keep you on the edge of your seat. Odds are that some fans do not even know all of the players’ names. Still, the excitement they create with their talent is contagious! The noise of the crowds, whistles from the referees, the speed of the game, and of course, the cheerleader-dance teams (an added bonus). They can bring new life, new hope, and renewed spirit back into the game and back into a resident’s life.
It all started as an activity, one day the residents were asked what they would want if they could have anything. Marlin answered I would like to have the Penn State dance team come and dance for me. Marlin stated that he enjoys the game of football, but the dancers and the cheerleader were the real attraction. Marlin has been a Penn State fan for years and still attends many of the home football games with his family.
Memories shared from the past now brought into the present once more. Marlin enjoyed a personalized visit from the Penn State cheerleading/dance team on February 28th. At the end of the performance the dance team presented Marlin with a Penn State sweat shirt and posed for some pictures with him. Marlin was asked how he enjoyed the performance and he was speechless, but he continued to smile during the whole 30 minutes they were dancing.
