Paterno family to sell DVDs of “A Memorial for Joe”
Last week, 10,000 lucky ticketholders gathered in the Bryce Jordan Center to celebrate the life of Joeseph Vincent Paterno. The emotional service, which lasted just under three hours, consisted of speakers including Jay Paterno, Nike chairman Phil Knight, and a representative of the football team from each decade during which Paterno coached.
Thousands of people who were unable to get tickets within the short minutes during which they were available watched either the live broadcast or one of the multiple replays of the service on television or online.
Now, everyone will have a chance to relive those three memorable hours for years to come. Joe Paterno’s son, Scott, has announced that the family will be selling DVD copies of the memorial service on a website that will be announced in the coming weeks.
All proceeds from the DVDs will be donated to a yet-to-be-disclosed charity. Leave it to Joe Paterno to continue giving back even after his passing.
