Joe Paterno dies...

Probably. News networks getting ready to report his death if they can stop talking about Newt for five seconds.

Six months ago I probably would have made a big deal about this. Now? I'll silently say a prayer for his soul and move on.

Actually everyone is retracting on the death as of right now. Just in serious condition.

Why does your title on the thread say Paterino? Did I miss something? Apparently he's still alive btw.

If only we could leave the sports figure news to ESPN, Yahoo!, CBSSports, etc. You know, like it usually is -- a breaking alert on Sports Center and a one line story side bar link on the news outlet of your choice. Except that's clearly not going to happen with JoePa...

Stupid media trying to get a social media/web traffic boost with premature and uninformed "sources."

The guy's gonna die in the next few hours or days, people need to back off a bit.
