Two More Reasons Why Saturday Could Be Special

If you pay the least bit of attention to Penn State football, you know that Joe Paterno could win his 400th game as head coach Saturday afternoon. Lots of stories have been written this week about the potential milestone, and we’ve linked to a few of these on our Facebook page, but there’s one more that I think is worth sharing: This piece by David Jones of the Harrisburg Patriot-News offering perspective on why Joe’s 400th is a mark unlikely to be reached by any other college coach.

Win or lose Saturday, the game against Northwestern will be memorable for a group of veterans and staff members from the Van Zandt VA Medical Center in Altoona. It seems an anonymous donor is providing the group with 41 game tickets and a catered tailgate, all as a thank-you to the vets and those who help them. That’s just awesome.
