First and foremost, let me start out:
Dear David Jones,
(btw, important side-note: do NOT google image search 'suck it dog')
Anywho, I just saw this video on FOS with a day two interview with Joe, and anyone who worried yesterday at the video that came out, and about David Jones' dire predictions of this being Joe's last season because he "looks horrible", I think you can relax:
Notice anything different from the doom and gloom from yesterday? Joe is fine, everyone should have listened to him saying he was fine to begin with. He's got the same old spark as ever, and wasn't slurring words or talking really quietly. What was the difference from yesterday? Who knows, he does touch on having a busy weekend and leaving State College very early. Plus he delivers the most important response to all the questions about his health (10:00):
Reporter: Are you concerned at all that you're getting asked so many questions about this and not football?
Joe: Yeah, I wish you guys would knock it off to be honest with ya. I'm gonna start asking, "What's the matter with you? Can't you find a razor? [rubs his chin looking at a reporter]"
Joe said it best yesterday when he quoted Twain, "The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated." Yes, the man is almost 85, and has had some health problems (most were physical and not disease), and yes, at his age those problems are always to be treated seriously, but I think it's fair to say, he's the same guy we all know and love, and still able to surprise us with his wit and uncanny ability to remember details that few people half his age would be able to do.
[btw, I don't know the rules on posting videos, but this is a free video from FOS available on YouTube, but I can link it if it's not kosher to post the whole thing here, and my apologies if it is]
