Our Highest Paid Intern Produces A Gem! (Diamonds Are A Lion's Best Friend)

 Updates are coming when my day job allows are here!  And new interns are coming out of the woodwork to volunteer to compile a Women's version!!!

Our Official Physicist Brian Boyer shames all the rest of you as he simultaneously keeps the world safe from nuclear proliferation, raises a family in a foreign land, continues to run at a high level AND produces a post for our humble blog that blows us all away!  He went through all the results of the Berwick Run for the Diamonds to highlight the best performances of Nittany Lions.  Those listed in the top 5 received diamonds!

He has earned the first ever Pierre de Coubertin Intern Bonus!  The funds will be transferred via an unmarked C-130 transport plane in the dead of night in small bills of Chinese Yuan and Cambodian Riels.
