DAVID JONES – JOE’S LAST STAND Patriot-News
I did not see the “Outside the Lines” special on the problems that Penn State is facing with its football players, but Jones did and does not believe that Joe Paterno handled it well, while university president Graham Spainer did.

Oh and since that special aired, two defensive linemen, Chris Baker and Phil Taylor were kicked off the team (CDT). Head on over to Black Shoe Diaries for more analysis and reaction. Baker’s pitbull getting him in trouble (CDT), may have been the last straw.

More and more, this is looking like Paterno’s last year as head coach.

Music Tuesday: I’m on Fire (Live)

I am down the Shore this week, so I thought I would choose something by the favorite, Bruce Springsteen. I realize “Girls in Their Summer Clothes” would probably be more appropriate, but it is not one of my favorites. “Fire” on the other hand is one of his best. The staccato guitar is fantastic, exceeded only by some incredible lyrics like these:

Sometimes its like someone took a knife baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
Through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the
Middle of my head

Damn.

Henry Aaron disagrees

On Saturday evening, Erica and I were watching the Yankees vs. Red Sox game on FOX. Joe Buck and Tim McCarver were talking about Boston starter Tim Wakefield‘s rookie season with the Pirates when he won two NLCS games against the Braves. Of course, those wins merely prolonged the inevitable for Pittsburgh as they lost in game 7 when Francisco Cabrera knocked in Sid Bream to win the NLCS. McCarver then added it was the most famous hit in Atlanta sports history.

Huh?
