During last night's Penn State-Notre Dame N.I.T. Semifinal game, ESPN decided to sit down with Joe Paterno and the result is one of the most hilarious on-air interviews I've ever witnessed. After some Football questions, Bill Raftery decided to ask the Coach what he thought about College Basketball and this was his response (sorry for the video quality). Via HHR....
"They all talk about it as a Black Man's game now. Everyone says it's a Black Man's game. When I grew up it was a Jewish mans game."- Joe Paterno
Obviously Joe Paterno wasn't being derogatory in any way, but it's still awkward to hear someone who's 82 years old not being politically correct. The added clip of Joe Pa emulating the granny free throw was just icing on the cake.
