The Paterno Saga

Little compassion in the press these days. Nice responses from Bill Curry and Vince Dooley. Took courage for Curry to call both Paterno and Sandusky friends.

Hard to believe that Dooley quit coaching at 56. These days that's young in life, but old in coaching. He's gotten to enjoy his twilight years, which is nice. Gardening and history were his interests. As AD he took UGA courses in both subjects.

Paterno has always been benevolent. He doesn't seem like Bear Bryant…nor does Bobby Bowden.

Went to Nuevo Laredo Cantina Wednesday night, down off Howell Mill.

I'm not a huge Stephen King fan (I've never read one of his books or seen any of his movies), but it sounds like his new book "11/22/63" is right up my alley. JFK assassination, time travel, and a little romance. "The Brethren" is the next Clancy book I'll read, about the three judges in jail.

Is there anyone one the Royals worth trading JJ and Prado for? I know they have prospects ready to hit the bigs, but why would they trade them for older players? It'll be interesting to see how Melky does for the Giants. He had a great year last year, but Braves fans will forever have a bad taste in their mouth for him.

This morning, for the first time ever, I wore unmatched shoes. They do look similar, and are both black, but they sure feel different. In the dark they looked like a match. No one noticed, without me saying something first.
