Unfortunately, they were only taken from his statue, not his 205-year old decrepit face. Heh.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - January 8, 2009 — 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.
Has anyone questioned Millhouse Van Houten? Maybe he lost his pair?
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.
An officer “observed someone had removed the glasses from the Joe Paterno statue located on the east side of Beaver Stadium,” said a university police log. (H/T - WPVI)
Look, I can’t stand the guy, but I didn’t do it. I have an alibi and witnesses. The State College Police should probably be looking at Father Time, though, since he’s already taken Joe Pa’s eyesight, faculties, football knowledge . . .
