I was hoping he`d have hung himself. Unfortunately he`ll probably die a comfortable death

As of a few minutes ago, the Paterno family is denying that he has passed...

c`mon Fancy... reporting someone is dead before it`s confirmed is pretty low.

The only two sites on the internet currently claiming that Paterno died and have not pulled the story or retracted are People Magazine... and IAB.

That being said, it has to be a matter of hours until he actually does die.

wikawaka, i think those are old sources from earlier today when the Paterno family was denying his health. major news outlets (like I-A-B) are reporting he`s explaining the Sandusky thing to God now.

Both of his sons have denied this report. Another case of internet hacks trying to be the first to break a story and forgetting the part where they have to make sure it`s actually true.
