The PG's Bob Smizik takes Penn State to task for allowing Portland to ride roughshod over university standards, policies and common decency.
And what does the big mac-Daddy of PSU sports himself have to say about the whole thing (he hired Portland back in the day when he was athletic director)?
Uh huh. Well, fortunately, he won't be hiring the next coach. Rumor has it that Pittsburgh's own Suzie McConnell-Serio is at the top of the consideration list. Now that would be very romantic, but I'd suggest PSU take a moment to ensure that McConnell-Serio "gets" it on LGBTQ issues. She's on the record as stating that sexual orientation is a "personal choice" and that she'll respect personal choices. Not exactly a ringing endorsement for affirming lesbian players, but a far cry from the Portland-menace approach. If McConnell-Serio can keep her attention on the game and the players' behavior related to the game, more power to her.
But wouldn't it be cool if Penn State hired an openly lesbian coach?

Imagine if Joey Porter mated with Ann Coulter ... they could spit out homobigot puppies left and right, well mostly just right.
I just had to chime in on this. The Tribune Review printed a list of Joey's highs and lows during his Steeler tenure. I won't recant all the amazing athletic feats he accomplished -- bully for him for doing the job he was amply compensated to do. But here's how Scott Brown sums up Porter's homophobia:
WTF? Outspoken? Some said were offensive? In what reality is calling Kellen Winslow Jr. a fag not offensive? He was trash talking so everything he said was intended to be offensive.
Brown was more outraged by Porter's horse-murdering dogs than his blatant bigotry. Nice, huh?
Now if I could just connect this to police secondary employment, the mayoral endorsement or Dennis Regan ...

Sometimes greed can be a dyke's best friend. In this case, it means Joey Porter will take his trash-talking bigotry and hit the road for greener pastures. I don't care if he made 879 tackles last year and was Most Valuable Stud three years running or even if he did single-handedly hold back the entire Steeler team so Jerome Bettis could have his moment in the sun ... I don't even care that his team mug shot is plastered all over the city on the anti-homicide billboards urging people to report murders.
I think we're better off without him and his arrogant disrespect for any creature other than himself. We are not fans of Joey Porter.
This lesbian couldn't be happier.
