As stated by another commenter, it was way more than just one person. Way more. It was an entire culture and mindset that substituted things that don't matter for things that do.

I still remember watching a broadcast showing Penn State students when the NCAA sanctions were being announced live, and the expression on one girl's face in reaction to the NCAA discipline looked as if she had just learned that both of her parents had just died in a plane crash. Warped values and no perspective.

Programs like these that trump all other worldly concerns, deify the participants, and elevate a mere game to something that religions can only envy are simply the wrong way. Good luck to us when our global economic rivals in the competitions that really matter run us off our feet because we're just too busy watching this nonsense non-stop on the boob tube.

Let's not forget Saint Joe, the man who committed significant sins of omission.
