Brace yourself for a new Joe Paterno next fall. The 83 year-old is losing his trademark goggles and going with a sleeker look thanks to surgery to correct his vision.
No longer in need of the spectacles, Paterno put them on the auction block with proceeds benefiting Penn State Public Broadcasting. A Baltimore couple paid a whopping $9,000 to acquire them, with an original maximum bid of $10,500 dollars.
It must be nice to have some extra cash laying around to spend on tacky memorabilia. Personally, I would never blow that much cash on something that has been on a strange man’s face for decades.
