They’re worried. What can you do with one of the largest football stadiums in the country, out in the middle of nowhere, when the cheering dies?
Beaver Stadium does not have a liquor license, either.
From the Centre Daily Times, a dearth of ideas. Maybe a Flyers/Penguins game …:
Penn State trustee Paul Silvis said Thursday that utilizing Beaver Stadium in more ways could be a possibility to draw more tourism to the county in the wake of the NCAA sanctions against the football team. He suggested a concert could be held there.
Punt said there is speculation of a Philadelphia Flyers-Pittsburgh Penguins NHL Winter Classic in the stadium every year and that would be a “dream” for he and Joe Battista, associate athletic director for ice arena and hockey operations.
One obstacle, Punt said, would be acquiring a one-day liquor license to serve alcohol at the event, because the NHL requires that venues have alcohol available. Beaver Stadium does not have a liquor license or sell alcohol typically.
One assumes even Pennsylvania’s strangled liquor control board would not actually stop Penn State from getting the proper paper. However, the phrase ‘we’re fucked’ does come to mind.
