Joe Must GoJuly 17th, 2012 at 8:29 pm by Eric Murphy under From the Cheap Seats
- Brown University did the right thing by removing Joe Paterno’s name from the outstanding freshman athlete of the year award, and I’m sure they’ll follow through by taking him out of their athletics Hall of Fame. As of right now the board is reviewing the situation in the wake of the Freeh Report, which proves Joe Pa’s knowledge and cover up of former coach Jerry Sandusky’s continued molestation of young boys in State College. Much like the Joe Paterno statue will someday be taken down outside of Beaver Stadium my assumption is that his name will be wiped clean from the many distinguished honors he’s received from his Alma Mater. The latest chapter in the sad saga of a man once thought of as the epitome of a college football ambassador.
- Another day another injury for the Red Sox, or as David Ortiz says, the Red Sox are cursed. Big Papi the latest victim as he limps around Fenway with a bum Achilles. So far it doesn’t appear to be anything too serious but we may have to wait until August of 2015 before we see the return of the “full” Red Sox lineup.
- The new Aaron Sorkin/HBO creation “The Newsroom” is getting plenty of pub and has become a water cooler subject here at the news station. I have to admit I really liked the first episode but have now hit the eject button. Trust me when I say that NO ONE talks like that in a newsroom. I find myself laughing at the quick comebacks and long witty banter and in turn, I could care less about one single character. My guess is that it will still get a solid 7-8 year run on HBO. I mean Hung somehow held on for three seasons.
