Thousands of Penn State Students Hold Vigil For Child Sex Abuse Victims

On Friday evenings, Penn State students typically hold a pre-game pep rally for their team. Things are much different just 6 days after news broke regarding Jerry Sandusky's child sex crimes. Legendary coach Jim Paterno's storied career at PSU is over after having been fired on Wednesday night. Moreover, the future of their football program is up in the air as to who will lead it in the future.

Last night, thousands of Penn State students held a candlelight vigil for the abused victims. The images of last night were moving and quite powerful. With the eyes of the nation on Penn State, this was a bold and classy move by the students to show the nation that they aren't like the idiots who rioted on Wednesday night following Joe Paterno's firing.

Phillies Sign Closer Jonathon Papelbon

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro was fed up with contract negotiations heading nowhere with Ryan Madson and moved in another direction, signing former Red Sox closer Jonathon Papelbon to a 4-year $50 million contract. In terms of money, this is a lateral move for the Phillies as Brad Lidge made $12.5 million annually.

While it doesn't improve their offense, they are adding one of the best closers in baseball with the move. It's a sound baseball move.

Nationals Catcher Wilson Ramos is Rescued by Venezuelan Forces

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was rescued by Venezuelan commandos. The daring rescue took place in the mountains of Venezuela yesterday evening.  A few days ago, Ramos was kidnapped by a group of thugs, but he is now safe and sound.
