Joe Paterno is old.
He is really old.
83 years old to be exact.
Here is the thing about old people they have trouble hearing, so I am not shock that Paterno has no clue what this radio host is saying.
Paterno is still the head coach of Penn State, but in name only, more of a figurehead than anything else, but as long as he wants to wear his Steve Urkels on the sideline he will be allowed to.
Might want to get a hearing aid though.
