There are 44,000 students at this campus. That riot was a small percentage of that, it must be noted. I'm not the only sane one. Most are.

Hey guys, some party tonight, huh?

The Penn State board of trustees just asked me if they could use my likeness on the helmets next year to replace the Nittany Lion profile!

How had I not seen this until now?



The title of this fucking scumbag's autobiography was Touched? Really?

And reports are saying that this is going to get even uglier. Wow:

Sandusky is married and has six adopted children. He also took in foster children.

I wonder what his wife has to say about any of this.

This really has nothing to do with sport.

I have class in seven hours in a building right next to where some of the riots were. I'm not sure if that area is going to be fixed up by that time.

Well seeing as his wife called one of the victims out of the blue after several years just before he was supposed to testify to the grand jury, one can only assume she has been in some way involved in covering it up for some time as well.

I'm going to have to disagree and say that this has everything to do with sport - specifically the ridiculous degree of importance that we as a society place upon it. Had these allegations been leveled at even the most prominent professor on campus, that individual would have been disciplined immediately; because the allegations involved the precious football program, however, all channels of the school were content to ignore the problem for over a decade. Universities with major sports programs consistently bow to the interests of their players, coaches, and boosters, which only serves to reinforce the attitude of entitlement and sense of being above the law that are already so heavily pronounced among those groups.

As these riots show, to me at least, sports fanaticism is able completely and utterly to destroy any semblance of logic, empathy, and, often, basic human decency. We as a culture need seriously to reevaluate the reverence with which we hold college and pro sports. This whole affair, but especially the pro-Paterno riots last night, is among the most reprehensible things that I have ever witnessed.
