Maybe It's Just Me????

I mean really, what the fuck? A person gets nominated for a Presidential Medal of Freedom because he coaches a bunch of kids in a football game.

Chuck Noll said in his press conference when he announced he was retiring from coaching the Steelers, "It's time for me to get on with my life's work." (Or something like that) What he meant was there are things in life that are way more important than coaching football. It's not brain surgery for cryin' out loud.

I don't know, maybe it's just me. But who in their right mind would put Joe Paterno in the same category as Dr. Martin Luther King, Justice Thurgood Marshall, Dr. Jonas Salk?

Just askin'.

*When I was looking up a quote for Chuck Noll, I came across this one.

"Some coaches pray for wisdom. I pray for 260-pound tackles. They'll give me plenty of wisdom."

Love it!

On another note, is it just me, or does anybody else want to take Stephen Slater out for a well deserved drink? You go man......... We've all been there, haven't we? He followed through on what each and every one of us has wanted to do at some point in our lives. (Thankfully I have my AMG girls, we've talked each other off the wall too many times to count!)

Stephen, you are my kind of hero,not Grecian Joe Paterno!

Oh Eileen! If my son were just a few years older (and could pay his own rent), I'd hook you up with him! Unless you want to pay his rent....he's real cute and real smart...LOL!!
He was home for one day and went nuts on this Joe Paterno thing (yes, I know....he's getting his PhD at Penn State....but he is NOT a Penn Stater....).
Can't wait to see the pix....if you were with Bruce, I'll just have to touch you!!
