12 Days of Christmas, Nittany Sports Now style

Merry Christmas, everyone. As I get ready to watch “Christmas Vacation” for the 100th time and debate whether “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie or not, I’d like to try and bring a smile to your face with my central PA sports edition of 12 Days of Christmas.

Sing along …
