So many people are bashing PSU fans who continue to show support for Joe Paterno following his dismissal as head coach of Penn State. What they fail to realize is that Paterno has been a grandfather figure to so many who follow the team. In fact, he was almost the same exact age as my own grandfather.
When we lose loved ones suddenly in life, what is the common thing many of us say? “I wish we had more time” or “I never got to say goodbye.”
