Disgraced ex-Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 counts of child sex abuse Friday night, resulting in an effective life sentence for the 68-year-old. The guilty verdicts include 25 felony counts. Combined, Sandusky could be sentenced to 442 years in prison.

How a six year old bleeds blue and white
If you ask my 6-year-old son if he is going to college, he’ll say “yes.” If you ask him where is going, he already knows that, too. Penn State. More accurately, my son knows that if he wants mommy to pay for college, he is going to Penn State. I’ve joked about that for enough years now, that he asked me the following question last week: “Mom, is that deal still on for Penn State? Will you still pay for it?” he asked. “Yes, Seamus, of course. If you want to go to Penn State, mommy will pay for every cent,” I replied (as always). “Good, cause I don’t want to leave college with any debt.” I love that my 6 year old is already concerned for his financial future, but more so, I love that he loves my school. Penn State, if you have not gathered, …
