In a move atypical of old men who usually instruct youngsters to “get off their lawn,” a video has surfaced online of Joe Paterno coming out to meet a throng of student supporters who have gathered in his front yard.

After addressing the week’s events and the controversy in which he and the university find themselves embroiled from inside his house and through his window, Paterno steps outside to address his supporters face to face, ultimately leading those in attendance in Penn State’s famous “We Are…” chant.

Words fail me.

I AM…bewildered. Thanks to “Your Reporting Sucks” for turning us on to the videos of Joe at his window.
