WHO STOLE MY GLASSES?

That's what the Joe Paterno statue was saying after some vandals got a hold of it this weekend:
Penn State police are looking out for Joe Paterno's Coke bottle-thick glasses — the bronzed ones that were perched on the statue of the iconic football coach that stands outside Beaver Stadium.

Vandals apparently cut the glasses off just above the base of the ears of the 7-foot sculpture between 11 a.m. Friday and 11 a.m. Saturday, when a police officer noticed the damage.



I'm not the world's biggest Lion fan, but you just can't steal JoePa's glasses. That's like stealing Chris Sabo's goggles. It's just wrong. So it's time to fess up. Which one of you Panther fans is holding them for ransom in exchange for the long-awaited home-and-home series?

You don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
And you don't cut JoePA's glasses off.

Whatever my feelings towards Penn State, this is just plain wrong on many levels.

It's like the Nazi's staring at the Ark......

I remember the old days when they would wait for somebody to die before making a statue of them.

Maybe NASA needed a new lens for the Hubble.

Here's a song that even mentions his glasses from Jim and Randy.
