David Jones of the Harrisburg Patriot-News reports that Craig James has apologized for the disrespectfully gaseous geriatric epithet he applied to Joe Paterno on Saturday’s broadcast, and that no further disciplinary action will be taken by ESPN/ABC.
“Earlier today, during our halftime show, I was trying to show admiration and compliment Coach Paterno and his intensity. I inadvertently used an expression about Coach Paterno that I apologize for.
“I’ve supported Coach Paterno for years, and I continue to be a big fan of this guy for all these years and I certainly hope his leg’s OK.”
So, in other words, James voted for Paterno before he voted against him.
