People loves a good scandal.
Anyone of the above headlines would cause a flurry of clicks to read the account of a hero falling. (For the record, they are all false.)
The sports world has recently been rocked by revelations in which the ultimate good guy, Joe Paterno, and clean college football program, Penn State, covered up multiple cases of abuse by an assistant coach.
If you are not from Pennsylvania, it is hard to understand how shocking this is.
The location of Penn State is called Happy Valley.
Joe Paterno was the ultimate blue-collar coach who players adored.
Penn State has plain uniforms with no names signifying a team rather than individuals or superstars.
Pennsylvanians truly bleed the blue and white of Penn State.
