My homework assignments this week are on athletics. To be sure my most unfavorite sport is football; however, all five of them are on football. Whoopee! There are so many guys tooting their horns. Rationalizing about all their shortcomings a.k.a.” screwups.” Just four of them because the one on Joe Paterno has not been refuted, due to the fact he is no longer with us. He was, if you will bear with me “tormented to death,” last fall after the big scandal hit the headlines. However, the commentaries still do not let him rest in peace
I do not know all the facts, but I am convinced Ol’ Joe wasn’t any big coverup artist. Nor do I think he was involved in any kind of conspiracy to defend a child rapist. In fact he was one of Sandusky’s victims also. He probably did not know anything about pedophiles, or what they do. Let’s not be in a rush to judgment. The law says innocent until proven guilty. Right? There will be a time to exonerate him and to clear his name down the road; or to convict him and destroy his legacy.
We do not know what he knew; we only know we should have solid evidence that he knowingly conspired to protect Penn State. Surely, before we start being judge, jury and executioner, we need to reserve judgement until after the trial. The truth should come out during the trial of ex-PSU official athletic director Tim Curley in January, then we will all be able to say that we know that we know that we know!!! Amen..
