I had to do it! I had to create a blog so you and I could gripe about all of "The Crap" that we encounter everyday in our lives. Believe me, there is plenty! You can now come to this blog to Gripe because you have the right to do so. Over time, we will Gripe about topics ranging from sports to politics to just about all of the garbage that happens around us. When you Gripe, you can add your name or not. It's your right! You can vent any way you want. Use foul language if you are angry enough to and if you are offended, just Gripe It! Hell, we have been banned from Facebook twice! You can Gripe about people, places and things. The only thing I ask is if you are going to Gripe about someone and you use their name, make sure you have the facts straight or say it's your opinion. Otherwise they will sue your and my ass off! It's your RIGHT TO GRIPE! You can respond to one of our Gripes or you can lay down your own Gripe. It's easy.

Penn State - Paterno Racking Up Losses

In life, Joe "Big Nose" Paterno won more football games than any other coach in NCAA college football history.  He built a historic football program at Penn state University built on hard work, loyalty and honor.  He always made sure 85% or more of his players graduated and earned a college degree.  Over his many years, he placed a boat load of players in the NFL who went on to have long careers.  During his life, JoePa racked up a boat load of wins in more than just football.  However, since his death, "Big Nose" Joe has been on the losing end of almost everything his name is connected with.  Since his death from lung cancer he has racked up more losses than he had in his final season coaching the Nittany Lions football team.

It appears now that many of the organizations that had the Paterno name attached to them are rushing the QB to sack his name.  Paternoville, a tent city outside Beaver Stadium where students camp out for prime football tickets, was scrapped this week in favor of Nittanyville.  Nike took Paterno's name off a child care center on its corporate campus the day the Freeh report was released.  The halo that had floated above Paterno's head in a State College mural was also removed by the artist, who added a blue ribbon in support of child abuse awareness.  This is just a start to what may be a losing season for the former coach.  Still to come are match ups with the Board of Trustees concerning the statue, the Paterno name on the library and the ruling of the NCAA.  It looks like it will be a rebuilding decade for the PSU football program.
