Our Hospital Board Chairman, Tom Birdsell is a good sport. Unfortunately for him, his beloved Nittany Lions lost in this year’s Rose Bowl game to my alma mater, the USC Trojans. True to his word, due to the loss, Tom wore a USC baseball cap for the entire Board meeting and even threw out a few “USC Rocks” shout outs.
As Tom’s fellow Board member, Sean Hogan, said at the end of the Board meeting, “I better hope USC never loses in the Rose Bowl game.” Sean’s right. It could get ugly. Thank you Tom, for being a man of your word. Go Trojans! And Go Lions, too!
