Even Your Heroes Need Rehab

Penn State Football Icon Joe Paterno broke his left leg and damaged a knee ligament Sunday when a Wisconsin player rammed his helmet into JoePa's leg during the third quarter. Reportedly, JoePa is considering surgery vs. letting the injury heal naturally, but has no plans to let the injury sideline him.

Considering that Paterno turns 80 next month, it's hard for the press to avoid the obvious cliches. If you've seen JoePa working the sidelines in person or on TV, though, you know that Joe's doing better than most people half his age. I just hope that JoePa can make a quick recovery and shut up all the naysayers.
