joe paterno memorial service

Maybe someone who is still revered Joe Paterno, but he was not bound by the former coach of such grace, to go where nobody else stepped to the microphone dared to go. ¶ It was Nike's Phil Knight, chairman, one of the 12 speakers at the memory of the late Paterno, who was not part of the Penn State community to say what everyone probably wanted, but had to respect one's sense Paterno family decency to say really. ¶ "It's a tragedy villain," Knight said, looking around 12,000 attendees, "found in the research, not Joe Paterno's reaction ...

Knight said that when he does, he turned and left the stage and behind a black curtain.
