OFFICIAL: Joe Paterno Dies at 85

After CBS posted Joe Paterno's death last night, today it is NOW officially official that he has died of complications with lung cancer.  He was 85.  

It's a sad ending to a full career as the LATImes reported, "His career ended mired with a scandal just after his record 409th career victory...."  This is another reason we should not idolize man.  We are all only human.  At his age, at least, he did not live through and endure the trial of Sandusky and all of the horror there.  And one wonders what would Joe Paterno has testified to - truly - had he testified.  As the Times said, "from triumph to tragedy." 

That's a wrap folks.

Warmly,  Carolina Mama
