Here's a new open thread since we hit 1000 comments and the mods are busy. I don't want to type 75 words.
So, from Jay Paterno's Eulogy for Joe, because it's so sweet:
Joe Paterno indeed had an indomitable will, with one exception: when his will ran counter to that of his wife, and my mother, Sue Paterno. Once, while listening to -- to the U2 song "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own," I heard a beautiful lyric. It said, "You're the reason why the opera is in me." I shared that lyric with my dad. He smile with that same smile you've seen in that picture. He said, "That's your mother for me. That's your mother for me." Opera, you see, was an analogy he got. Years ago my father would work late into the summer evening hours and the sound of opera would gently drift through the night air over our rooms. My mother quite simply was the reason the opera was in my father's life. Joe Paterno strode the world with a confidence that he had found, met, and married the woman of his dreams.
