[Daily News] Joe Paterno fractured his pelvis again following a fall at his home but will not need surgery, a person close to the family told The Associated Press on Sunday. The former Penn State football coach was expected to make a full recovery after slipping Saturday and was admitted to the hospital the next day, the person added. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. Paterno, who turns 85 on Dec. 21, is also undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for what his family has said is a treatable form of lung cancer. Son Scott Paterno has said doctors are optimistic his father would make a full recovery from the illness. Paterno initially hurt his pelvis after he was blindsided on the sideline during preseason practice in August. Paterno was fired last month in the aftermath of child sex-abuse charges against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who maintains his innocence. He was diagnosed with cancer several days later during a follow-up visit to the doctor for a bronchial illness.
Been a rough few months for the kid-toucher-cover-upper, huh? Broken pelvis, then cancer, then broken pelvis again…oh, and of course a legacy ruined by his pal’s lust for little boy peens & poop chutes. I don’t necessarily believe in, well, anything, but it seems pretty obvious Joe Pa’s being kept alive to endure a bit torture by something much bigger than we know exists. I mean I don’t know how he didn’t just poof into a dust cloud when he got run over & cracked his pelvis the first time. Then, somehow, this fossil discovers lung cancer and is gonna make a full recovery…and now he breaks his fucking pelvis again? C’mon, man. How is he not dead by now? This is penance, old man, and I can’t help but feel like there’s only one person on Earth capable of doing the work of a supreme being. Joe Paterno, meet your maker.
