Joe Paterno was admitted to a hospital Sunday morning after fracturing his pelvis when he slipped and fell at his home the previous night, a source close to the Paterno family said.
The injury will not require surgery, the source said. But since the former Penn State football coach is being treated with chemotherapy as he battles lung cancer, doctors have decided to keep him in the hospital.
Paterno lost his job as the Nittany Lions coach, a position he'd held for 46 years, amid criticism that he hadn't done more when a sexual assault allegation surfaced regarding his long-time defense coordinator, Jerry Sandusky.
I'd let him borrow my nail gun but I don't have a nail gun.
yeah he both fell and he failed.
Must have slipped on Sandusky's lube.
SOUNDS LIKE SOMEBODY PUT A FOOT IN HIS ASS.
Old men don't bounce very well. Still I wish him a rapid recovery from lung cancer and sore butt.
It still baffles me how SICK and sadistic people can get. How far does a human have to go to get people to speak with one voice to say ENOUGH!!!
I've fallen and I can't get up.
