Video: Amid Penn State Scandal, Joe Paterno Leaves House For Football Practice

First, Penn State University abruptly canceled coach Joe Paterno's weekly news conference. Then Paterno's son Scott said he was arranging an off-campus news conference for his father. And then someone decided having an unsanctioned press conference would be a bad idea, so they scrubbed that plan too.

As a result, Paterno is trying to go about his usual Tuesday business--leaving his house to lead his Nittany Lions at football practice, but he's having a bit of trouble.

Below the jump, video of media swarming Paterno as he tries leaving his home, while supporters serenade him with chants of "JOE-Pa-TER-No!"
