Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Even if you were watching closely as UH dominated Penn State in the Ticketcity.com Bowl Monday, you might not have noticed one attendee.

The notorious Pedobear, an Internet meme embodying child molesters, was not only there, not only carrying a sign with the Penn State symbol saying "Keep Quiet and Don't Tell Anyone," but he showed up on the JumboTron, as the above picture from Deadspin shows.

Deadspin says the Shaggy Bevo UT message board took credit.

We're sure Cotton Bowl security simply thought he was a Houston Cougar (or a Nittany Lion?), but we're hoping there are no pictures of him making the Cougar hand signal.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
