Joe Paterno Passes Away

I half expected something like this to happen, people die pretty quickly on average after retirement. It's like once their career they defined themselves their whole life with, their body just says "Ok, I'm done."

I was talking to a friend when PSU fired him and I said that I bet he didnt live much longer.
Wow that sucks. He was probably living to coach
Saw this coming. Once he was fired, he didn't have much to keep him going.

Decide how you want to remember JoePa, but 1 thing he does not deserve is a Twitter play by play of his death.

Awful Announcing @awfulannouncing

The reports and denials about Joe Paterno is an unfortunate aspect of the ability to break and report news faster than ever.
No matter what you think, Joe was a legend and what happened over the past 4 months was unfortunate. Coaching was probably giving him something to live for and then add on all the scrutiny he was under. Sad sad end to a legendary career. Lets not forget he was a 85 year old man. As he stated, the allegations brought to his attention he felt were over his head and he didn't know how to handle them so passed them off to someone he thought would.
f**king Anthony Davis . . .

The s**t hit the fan and Joe Paterno got his ass outta here.. lol!/AnthonyDavis76/status/160907913689436160

After that he posted; "Oops . . maybe tomorrow" . . . but he deleted it afterwards.
