746 YEARS AGO ON THIS DAY, JOE PATERNO WAS BORN

New, 6 comments

746 years ago today in a small village in Biscari, Sicily, Joseph Vincent Paterno was born, and then converted to a zombie sometime during the Great Sicilian Zombie Outbreak of 1314. No big deal, as Paterno went on not only to thrive as a wealthy local merchant, but also to begin the long walk under the ocean in 1816 from Sicily to the United States to become our finest football coach and zombie.

Happy birthday, Zombie JoePa. All the BRAAAAAAAIIIIINS you can eat to you and yours.
