So y'know the JoePa memorial service that ESPN made a big deal out of? And how Phil Knight (Nike owner, Oregon football check signer) made some speech about how it wasn't Paterno's fault blah blah blah?

As Knight walked up to the podium the big screen behind it had a picture of just Paterno's feet, in his famous black shoes. Of course, with the swoosh. If I weren't so used to it I'd find it disgusting. Nike found a way to advertise at a funeral.
