"Can't put this on just Paterno"

I can and I will.  Paterno should, and did, take the fall because he could have stopped what was happening years/decades before it finally came to light.  Instead he enabled Sandusky by ignoring what was happening and allowing him to stay affiliated with the university and allow him to use the facilities for his camps.  Plenty of blame to go around?  Sure.  But JoePa likely had the closest relation to Sandusky as anyone at the university.  He knew, he ignored, and now children (at the time) are scarred for life because of what the POS Sandusky did to them, including all the ones who were violated after JoePa found out about what was going on.

Finally, what little I know about Schiano leaves me little doubt that if he saw or knew of any activities like this, he would have beat the living crap out of JS.  Trust Mike McQueary and his statements?  The fact that he left that shower room after witnessing what he did and leaving that boy alone with Sandusky says all I need to know about him.

Mrs. Buck and I use Prime Music extensively (both on iPhones and Sonos home speakers) and Prime Shipping.  Lots of good movies, shows, etc. include some pretty good original content (Bosch, Hand of God, Mad Dogs, Man in the High Castle, etc.).

There are also many movies/tv series (and original content) that you can download onto your iPad.  I do all the time as I fly/travel frequently.

We definitely get our monies worth!

Today is the last day but if you can handle crowds, go to RibFest in Naperville.  Dozens of vendors competing for best ribs/BBQ so maybe you will taste something there that brings back memories.  You can also buy their sauces, get online information, etc.

What I am encourage with is the fact that the Tribe traditionally starts slow then comes on at the end of the season.  Start strong, finish strong.  GO TRIBE!

Born in Elyria, grew up in numerous suburbs on the west side.  If you lived in Metropolitan Cleveland, you are a Clevelander.

If it's only one game (on Fox), I would opt for the nearest watering hole.

Have them out here in Plainfield Il.  Can hear them howling at night after a kill and see them wondering around occasionally.

Will have to ask some of the locals what the reverse commute up 400 currently looks like if you choose to live inside the perimeter.  You might be alright relatively speaking.  Being young and single, you will want to live closer to the action.  Many good recommendations made by others.

A little long (and by ESPN) but good recollection of the game.  I was there (14 at the time) with some buddies.  "Let's run on the field" to which I replied "The players are swinging bats for protection.  I'm good right here".  Left field foul pole.

How does ESPN lose subscribers and not lose viewers?  I understand for games shown on ABC but if games are shown on ESPN and you are not a subscriber to ESPN (through Comcast, DirectV, AT&T, etc,) how do people still view (and count as viewership) them without subscribing?  I totally disagree that cord cutters don't watch sports and don't watch ESPN.
