Once again, the issue of Paterno’s health came up during his question and answer session with the media. From the very beginning (which was an almost comically misplaced question by an apparent rookie reporter), the lingering issues Paterno has been facing were at the forefront of the session.
Dr. Saturday has a decent collection of links and a quick timeline for anyone that doesn’t know what has happened to the 83 year old coach in recent times.
All in all, Paterno, as stated, is 83. You find me an 83-year-old in as good of health as Paterno with as rigorous a schedule, and you’ll have either found Jack Lalanne, or no one.
