1/22/12 VIDEO: PENN STATE COACH JOE PATERNO DEAD AT 85 YRS OLD

22 Jan

It was reported today that coach Joe Peterno died at 85-years-old.  His death comes shortly after the Penn State child sex scandal cover-up involving Paterno, Jerry Sandusky and other school officials.  The coach was given the boot after word leaked that he failed to share his knowledge of abuse with police.  What a disappointment…to die with a tainted reputation after being one of the greatest coaches in history for over thirty years. 

Paterno was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and was getting treatment, but apparently could not overcome his illness. Maybe he also died of a broken heart?  

Tragic, but hopefully this will teach others a big lesson…if you know of abuse happening around you, share it with police and push officials until you are heard.  Sports is not worth a child’s life or any other life for that matter.
