No Age Discrimination in Pennsylvania

The other day the Philadelphia Phillies gave a two year contract to the oldest active player in baseball, 46 year old Jamie Moyer.

Then this morning we get word that Penn State is giving octogenarian Joe Paterno a three year contract extension. Paterno took over as head coach of Penn State's football team in 1966 when LBJ was president and Moyer was 5 years old. Before assuming duties as head coach, Paterno was an assistant coach at Penn State for 16 years.
