Penn State alum Tom Price, of Factoryville, Pennsylvania, spoke to a reporter from WNEP channel 16 and when asked about the NCAA sanctions handled down to Penn State for concealing facts concerning the long-time sexual abuse of children, he compared it to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Seriously, he equated the reduction in scholorships and a four-year ban from the post-season to the attacks that killed close to 3,000 people.
Tom Price is a Penn State grad and both are die-hard football fans. They have been to almost every home game since 1986.
They watched the news Monday of the sanctions against their school with heavy hearts.
“I just can’t put my arms around it, it’s, to me, it was our 9/11 today. I just saw planes crashing into towers,” said Tom Price.
Wow, just wow. Wasn’t 9/11 their 9/11? And to think Flight 93 even went down in Pennsylvania.
It’s hard to feel sorry for Penn State fans and alumni when one of their own gets on regional TV and says something as utterly stupid as that.
