Watching SportsCenter and watching the national news for the last few days or a week has been a little bit frustrating and saddening.Watching someone like Joe Paterno (or JoePa) lose his reputation and legacy in a matter of a few days has been tough to watch.
I tend to agree that Penn State University did what they needed to do by sending him on his way.
But, you never like to see someone ruin their legacy on one (or a few) bad decision.
I don’t know all of the details, but it was really one situation that has tarnished JoePa forever.
It goes to show…
No matter who you are, what you do, what you’ve done, how much you’ve succeeded, how indestructible you think you are, or how much you’ve accomplished…
You’re never exempt or incapable of throwing it all away.
Be on guard. Stand guard. Tighten it up.
Don’t let what you decide today ruin the progress you made yesterday.
