Joe Cool

From a caller I just hung up with (somehow we got talking about football):

“I never liked Joe Paterno, because he wears those darned tinted glasses. I just can’t get behind a guy if I can’t see his eyes.”

The caller said he spent his whole life not liking him for that reason, until one day after a bowl game in Florida he saw JoePa in the airport, standing there all by himself. “Wouldn't ya know, he had clear glasses on! I went up and introduced myself, and we talked for 15 minutes. I told him to please stop wearing those tinted glasses. Super nice fella. I’ve changed my mind about him.”

Ummm... okay. So this guy must've really hated Ray Charles, then.
