Former Penn State defensive coordinator and alleged child rapist Jerry Sandusky issued a statement on the death of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. The exclamation point in the opening line accentuates his strange personality and how out of touch he is.
“This is a sad day! Our family, Dottie and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to Sue and her family. Nobody did more for the academic reputation of Penn State than Joe Paterno. He maintained a high standard in a very difficult profession. Joe preached toughness, hard work and clean competition. Most importantly, he had the courage to practice what he preached. Nobody will be able to take away the memories we all shared of a great man, his family, and all the wonderful people who were a part of his life.”
Given what Sandusky is likely to go on trial for, he probably should not be talking about legacies and memories. He’s not exactly the best voice to comment on Joe Paterno’s life.Google+
