The Penn State scandal about alleged serial child rapist Jerry Sandusky and his alleged enabler Joe Paterno has given all of us something extra to be thankful for in this holiday season.
1. BE THANKFUL YOU WEREN’T A CHILD GROWING UP IN THE SANDUSKY/ PATERNO SPHERE OF INFLUENCE – That could have meant you were at the mercy of an alleged sexual predator and his alleged enabler, Joe Paterno.

Paterno expending more energy than he allegedly expended on the child rape situation at Penn State
With each passing day more and more revelations come out about the Jerry Sandusky/ Joe Paterno scandal at Penn State. The culture of silence allegedly overseen by Paterno might put you in mind of a petty and selfish little man exerting far more influence than he should have been permitted to wield. The picture emerging is of a football coach often at war with administrators at Penn State who tried to keep him and his football program in line. As I’ve written many times already that part is nothing new, but the allegations of multiple child rape are making many people sit up and take notice of the festering dung pile that IS NCAA Division 1 football.
Until now the Miami Hurricanes have represented everything slimy and corrupt about Division 1 football, but Joe Paterno’s Nittany Lions fiefdom is rapidly surpassing them in the realm of sludge and savage treatment of others.

But America has one thing to thank the alleged rapist of multiple children for. For decades most of us have been puzzled by the meaning of those stern “No Horseplay” signs around public pools. Now, thanks to Sandusky, we all finally understand that “horseplay” means elderly men showering with little boys, touching their legs, squeezing them and sliding around on the floor with them. Eeeww! Now I see why they didn’t want that kind of behavior around their facilities. That sort of thing would gross out and induce vomiting in everyone … except, apparently, Sandusky and his attorney.
Is there something here we’re all missing? Does Amendola believe that Continue reading
