Paterno’s family will sell DVD copies of coach’s memorial service

    Didn’t make it to State College for the Joe Paterno memorial service? Soon you’ll be able to buy a copy.

    The Associated Press reports the family of the deceased Penn State University football coach plans to sell DVDs of the service and donate the proceeds to charity.
    A website will go up soon where interest parties can buy copies.

    Paterno died Jan. 22 after a brief battle with lung cancer and after being fired from his coaching position for failing to report to authorities the alleged sexual abuse of children by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
