    Re: Paterno has lung cancer...

    Did his doctor wait nine years to tell him about the cancer, and then give him a line about how "legally, I'm not obligated to tell you about this cancer so long as I told my supervisor about it right after we first saw it on an xray"? Because if he did......that would be sort of poetic.

    (yeah, I know. I'm probably going to "that warm, underground place" for this post. So be it.)

    Re: Paterno has lung cancer...

    I fleshed out my thoughts this morning & posted a response to this news. No profanity in the post itself, but I can't vouch for the comments section.

    I also posted a tribute to the OSU victory last night when I arrived home. It's a little punchy, but I WAS still giddy over the victory.

    Ha, so true. Cancer sucks for anyone who has it in any form, but I have to admit the timing of the annoucement is suspect.

    More poetic if he had anal cancer.

    You know I hope it is one of those real slow forms...so he gets to testify and then
    be around for the lawsuits against him personally.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Guessing he wasn't a facilitator of systemic child rape. Cancer for soulful people is horrific. For paterno it isn't even close to what he deserves.

    Unless you missed it, I was referring to Joe Paterno. The guy who enable child rapings for at least a decade. Not your fiance's grandfather.

    The Doctors should have kept it a secret from him for like a decade then told his family after he died...
