Are You Ready For Some Trash Can

October 24, 2012 - Darian Somers
Tonight is the Third Annual Nittanyville Trash Can Football Tournament.

The origins of Trash Can Football are unknown, but some Christopher Grassi may or may not have had something to do with it. Grassi is a law student, who have been on Penn State's campus since 2005. He is the only member of Nittanyville who camped out of the first Paternoville.

So what is Trash Can Football?

It is a game played with four people, two footballs and four blue recycling trash cans that are outside of Beaver Stadium. Nittanyville is to Trash Can Football as America is to baseball.

The Rules Each group stands behinds two trash cans. The trash cans are anywhere from 20 feet to 50 feet apart. One groups gets the footballs and tries to throw them into the other group's trash cans. If the ball goes in, you grab it out and shut the lid. First one to close to lids wins. If the football bounces off the front of an opposing group's trash can, the group that throw the ball is allowed to track down the ball, stop and punt it.

The entry fee is $20s and the money goes towards Up Lifting Athletes. Some famous faces may also show up to tonight's event.

I will fill you with a run down of tonight's activities as well as arts and crafts with Brian Sanvido, Larry Ofcharsky, Joe Robison and me.
