"I think people don't realize how much she's (Sue Paterno) done for this place. I've said many times that they won't have any problems replacing me, but if they can find a coach's wife like Sue, they'll hit the jackpot."--Joe Paterno
Tom Dienhart is a senior writer for the Big Ten Network (BTN.com).
Today on his Twitter page he tweeted:
Isn't this about a year too late? Sue Paterno to sit down with Katie Couric for an interview
|Sue and Joe Paterno|
Not only did she lose her beloved husband of 50 years (they were married in 1962), she lost him to a vicious cancer.
Layered on top of that was a period of incredible chaos where Joe was abandoned by many of his closest friends, and vilified in the press for the actions of Jerry Sandusky.
Many concluded that Joe "did not do enough" to stop Sandusky.
Oddly, it seemed unimaginable that anyone could conclude that Joe did not do enough. He lead an exemplary life that was filled with good works and acts of kindness. Sadly, the previous 60 or so years did not seem to influence their conclusions.
I often thought and discussed with friends how much I hoped that someday we would hear from Sue. Quite frankly, I am surprised it is happening now, so soon. I look forward to her interview with Katie Couric.
I think it is safer and kinder to conclude that Sue Paterno is now ready to speak. Too late? You decide.
Joe once said,
"I think people don't realize how much she's (Sue Paterno) done for this place. I've said many times that they won't have any problems replacing me, but if they can find a coach's wife like Sue, they'll hit the jackpot."
He said that when he was 82 years old.
I am looking forward to hearing from Sue.
Maybe Dienhart should have listened first and then reacted.
Tom Dienhart is an insensitive Creep.
