Joe Posnanski announced on his blog that he's going to be reducing his writing so that he can spend the next 18 months preparing a book on Joe Paterno. More than just a biography, Posnanski describes it thusly:
I cannot begin to describe how excited I am about this project. I am, as you could probably tell from my previous stories on the man, a huge fan and admirer of Joe's. But even more than that I am endlessly fascinated by him and his lifelong quest to do something large, to impact America, through football. So writing about Joe, his triumphs, his struggles, his journey, well, it really is everything I've ever wanted to do as a writer. I'll be living in State College this fall, so you can stop in and see me.
JoePos has written about JoePa earlier, and I'm very excited for this. Penn State fans should be, too.
