Just be you, Vermont.

We’re guessing that this map, when viewed by anyone with a negative, apathetic, or in-perspective attitude towards sports, is probably a good way to spike your blood pressure. Still, nice to see that as in so many ways, New Hampshire is an island unto itself. (Update: Originally referred to “Vermont” instead of “New Hampshire.” That’s what we get for not checking our map!)

Joe Paterno’s memorial service: A strong defense against a grave offense
Paterno, remembered: During Thursday’s memorial service, numerous speakers remembered the longtime Penn State figure’s life, and his time as a coach, with great reverence, showing respect for the man at a time when his legacy has been clouded by controversy. Speaker after speaker — family, friends, and disciples — spoke reverently of him, emphasizing a legacy that goes far beyond that of an unspeakable scandal, one that improved many lives and the scope of a university. Perhaps none said it better than Nike chairman Phil Knight: “If there is a villain in this tragedy, it lies in that investigation, and not in Joe Paterno’s response.” Penn State football, under Paterno, was known for its great defense; the defenders came out strong Thursday. source

Penn State response on report of Joe Paterno death says the initial report was “corroborated by multiple sources” but now a family spokesperson has “denied our initial report.” The report appears to be the basis of a CBS Sports report declaring Paterno dead. [Twitter]
