Did You See This? Joe Paterno July 4 cloud

Before the annual July 4 fireworks Thursday in Happy Valley, an eerily familiar looking cloud emerged. Like, a cloud that resembled the school’s late football coach Joe Paterno. Seriously. Check out the picture sent to Paterno’s son, Jay, in this post.

You see Paterno, too, don’t you? Crazy stuff, no doubt.

This Nittany Lion has no doubt that our Joe is watching over Happy Valley.

Charles on 7/6/2013 @ 11:14am EDT Said:

Joe got the shaft, great to see him looking out for his school.

PSU85 on 7/6/2013 @ 2:58pm EDT Said:

That is no doubt that Joe Pa is still in the hearts and minds of the faithful.

doug moore on 7/6/2013 @ 4:16pm EDT Said:

Gang, those are sweet rationalizations..I guess we need them. But, the good news is Joe is at PEACE! Like all of us Joe wasn’t perfect. They can take away victories earned by proud Lions..remove a statue..but, they will never’ change the things he put In motion, “success with honor”, high grad rates & dedication to family & community! When you look at the sky you might see a bunny or a turnip..I have..or you might be lucky enough to see Joe! GO LIONS!

sam on 7/6/2013 @ 5:52pm EDT Said:

You all are dumber and more pathetic then I ever imagined…

Maria on 7/6/2013 @ 7:32pm EDT Said:

Always And Forever…Love Ya JoePa!

John on 7/6/2013 @ 8:15pm EDT Said:

The truth always wins out… May not today or even tomorrow but someday it will be revealed.
Miss you Joe RIP

Jeremy Weller on 7/6/2013 @ 8:40pm EDT Said:

Sweet!! It’s weird not having Joe Pa on the sideline for the Penn State Game… College Football Legend! GO BLUE!!

Joe on 7/7/2013 @ 4:02am EDT Said:

Why doesn’t the Big Ten Network play any classic Penn State games anymore? I am not happy!

eric herrold on 7/7/2013 @ 9:01am EDT Said:

The heart and soul of Penn State!! JoePa lives on!!!

Patti Losinger Clark on 7/7/2013 @ 9:15am EDT Said:

Very cool! Joe Pa will always be with us!

karen on 7/7/2013 @ 3:06pm EDT Said:

Love you Joe Pa. This Bama fan and many others will never forget you!!!

Rick on 7/7/2013 @ 8:34pm EDT Said:

i saw someone on twitter that said they posted this picture last year ….not to take away how cool it is, but it isnt recent

Jerry Smeal on 7/8/2013 @ 6:49am EDT Said:

I got goose bumps seeing the old man

Todd on 7/8/2013 @ 9:58am EDT Said:

From the heart of Gopher-land– Joe Pa was THE best. Very sad the way way things went down but still held in the highest regard.

Angela King on 7/8/2013 @ 12:28pm EDT Said:

They can take down the statue but let’s see them take down the clouds!

John Almquist on 7/8/2013 @ 12:37pm EDT Said:

This is just more proof of the great saying,
“If God isn’t a Penn State fan, then why are the clouds blue and white?”

I had the honor of walking a couple blocks across campus once with
JoePa once and will never forget it. I wish Sue and his family all the best.

We miss you, Joe!

John Almquist on 7/8/2013 @ 12:42pm EDT Said:

“…then why is the SKY blue and white?”

Need more sleep…

Larry on 7/8/2013 @ 12:46pm EDT Said:

We Are………Grateful!

Mary on 7/8/2013 @ 1:00pm EDT Said:

Will always be a great man….God bless

LIONLUVER on 7/8/2013 @ 1:45pm EDT Said:

Joe was the best, and will always be the best. The truth will surface. Keep the faith Nittany Lions. NEVER GIVE UP cause Joe wouldn’t have. Our team will never give up, which is what a lot of jerks wanted. MAKE THEM PAY FOR IT NITTANY LIONS! Wear that huge blue and white chip on your shoulders. Our team is not normal – they ARE PENN STATE!!!

len dryer on 7/8/2013 @ 2:06pm EDT Said:

Coach Joe Paterno was a legend, and he was loved and respected by college football fans all over the world. I am a Buckeye and Badger alumnus, but Coach Paterno did so many good things for college football, his players, PSU, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, The Big Ten Conference, and American college football. Thank you, Coach Paterno.

James on 7/8/2013 @ 4:48pm EDT Said:

Simply put, Joe is and was the game’s moral compass. No amount of lies, distortions and baseless attacks will ever change that. Joe was a victim, but he was also a hero. If there is a heaven, Joe is most certainly there.

That crumbling sound you here is the wall of fiction constructed over the course of a year by the axis of evil falling apart brick by brick. Joe’s legacy is as sound as it ever was. We will not let the evil doers etch their false narrative into history. We Are…

Christine on 7/8/2013 @ 5:35pm EDT Said:

He is gone but will never be forgotten.

Joe was a great man, there will never be anyone like him. I miss knowing he’s no longer with us but glad he missed a lot of the lies that were told about him. So sorry for his family and all of us who loved him.

psu1977 on 7/8/2013 @ 8:08pm EDT Said:

This is so awesome. He was the eascape goat and what more can you say! He was the best and now we know he is looking down on his loved school/university/fans! We love you JoePa!

Great to see all the positive comments about Joe! Nittany Nation had to stick together.
We are…..

Shirley Clauser on 7/9/2013 @ 8:10am EDT Said:

He will always be looking over PENN STATE. AWESOME! Love You JOEPA, RIP.

n urban on 7/9/2013 @ 9:45am EDT Said:

I think this was photoshopped – but it’s nice anyway to see that JOE PA isn’t forgotten.

Steve Gaughan on 7/9/2013 @ 10:31am EDT Said:

I dunno… Joe had a much bigger nose. Ha!

Barb Hetic on 7/9/2013 @ 5:03pm EDT Said:

Beverly Morgan on 7/9/2013 @ 8:27pm EDT Said:

Just love this and hope it goes around the world!

Joel on 7/13/2013 @ 9:45pm EDT Said:

Joel from York—Mr. Joe gave so many of us great memories. I wish I could re-pay him somehow. WE do still love him!
