Joe Paterno had vision correction surgery after his Penn State Nittany Lions played in the Capital One bowl, and he showed off that specs-free look yesterday…because he hates America.
JoePa attended a medical charity function earlier Thursday. He told Fight On State, a Web site that covers Penn State football, that he had been having trouble reading the last six months, so he visited a Philadelphia eye doctor he had known for decades.
Paterno says he still feels funny without glasses, so he had a set made with similar frames but much thinner lenses. He wore those glasses to the charity event. –Chicago Breaking Sports.
I’m terrified; I really have no idea who that guy is. But it’s amazing that Paterno is not only still coaching, but is now seeking treatment for whatever seems to be ailing him. I’m sure Mrs. Paterno would find that to be a sort of mixed bag. If only they had a pill that could help a guy retire.
