When I grew up my father and all my brothers watched football on Saturday. Our team was Notre Dame and we pretty much viewed all the other teams (especially Miami) as evil. There were exceptions. The service academies, of course were an exception. And Penn State. My Dad told us that Joe Paterno played by the rules and was a good man. We still wanted Notre Dame to win but it didn’t hurt so bad if we didn’t.
I still believe Joe Paterno is a good man. He’s a good man that deserved to be fired for doing something very wrong.
