    Children are very important to Nike.

    If they take it down then the new statue of Sandusky with his pants down right behind it won't make any sense.

    Is a place with that name really where you'd want to locate yourself? Especially if you're a young man?
    I think it was a drunk student slurring "sterno-ville", but some witty media type thought, "Hey?! Paterno-ville!"

    I walked through it in 2009. It was f'n creepy. Drunk, dazed idiots sitting around in crappy tents and under cheap canopies, soaking wet, stinking like a fetid landfill, all the while believing they were "cool".
    Patheticville, is what it should be called.

    How about statues and info plaques of all the sanderpsky victims, right in the center of campus? Perhaps a constant reminder of the heinous crimes that were committed on that campus would finally wake all those enablers from their willfully ignorant stupor.

    I remember back in the 70s, on some Wide World of Sports type of show, a whole segment on how to get the best seats at the UCLA games that had sections dedicated to "open" seating. It included people camping out, holding places in line, etc.

    I guess it's no different than people who camp out waiting to buy concert tickets.

    Then again...do these universities NOT sell tickets online?!

    Idolizing a football coach is stupid, anyway.

    Continuing to idolize a football coach who protected his program, and not the children, is beyond the pale.
    Enter the black.

    HANK: Bobby, I never thought I'd need to tell you this, but I would be a bad parent if I didn't. Soccer was invented by European ladies to keep them busy while their husbands did the cooking.
    BOBBY: Why do you have to hate what you don't understand?
    HANK: I don't hate you, Bobby.
    BOBBY: I meant soccer.
    HANK: Oh. Oh, yeah, I hate soccer. Yes.

    If I'm the current PSU leadership I want the statue taken down and all vestiges of Paterno removed to begin healing the community and signal contrition and renewal to the world. Based on the arrogant reaction and denial from the PSU fan base in the wake of the Freeh report, I want the statue, mural and all else Paterno to remain to remind the world what a vile, evil place Happy Valley was and continues to be.
