When the NCAA leveled its crushing penalties against Penn State on Monday, you’d be hard-pressed to find a Nittany Lions fan that wasn’t totally crestfallen. But perhaps none were more devastated than Tom and Sally Price of Factoryville, Pa., who have been to every home football game since 1986. How upset were they? Well, good ol’ Tom compared the punishments to the greatest national tragedy the United States has ever seen.
“I can’t put my arms around it. To me, it was our 9/11 today,” Tom told WNEP. “I just saw planes crashing into towers.”
And you all thought talking about that stupid Joe Paterno statue instead of Sandusky’s victims was insensitive.
