Joe Paterno has definitely had an up and down relationship with the press over the years. Apparently back in the day (before I was born, let alone watching football), there were a number of reporters he hung out with and had over for Italian food after the games. But as technology and journalism have intersected and every statement comes under intense scrutiny, Joepa's relationship with the press has become more closed and even antagonistic at times. Still, he manages to have a good time during his weekly press conferences. Just don't ask him about a game later in the season (he hasn't thought about that team yet; he's focusing on this week) or whether the team is good this year (it's a good group of guys but we'll see how they do).

Someone took this time to put together a humorous look at Joepa behind the mic. Enjoy!
