Entry Title Date
Honoring Joe Paterno February 9, 2012
Mike Kelly, R-PA
"My thoughts of Coach Paterno go way back to the time when I was a really young guy in Butler, Pennsylvania, and Coach Paterno at that time was an assistant coach for Rip Engle. Coach Paterno would come into our high school, and he was very close friends with my high school coach, Art Bernardi."
In Honor Of Penn State’S Football Coach, Joe Paterno November 3, 2011

Congratulating Joe And Suzanne Paterno On Their Receipt Of The American Jewish Committee Leadership Award March 11, 2011
Chaka Fattah, D-PA
"Mr. Speaker, the name “Paterno” is legend across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The successes of Joe Paterno, as football coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions since 1966, compiling an astonishing 401 victories, 24 bowl game triumphs, five undefeated seasons and two national championships, are well known to even the most casual sports fans."
Honoring Golf Legend Juan Antonio “Chi Chi” Rodriguez November 30, 2010
Jason Chaffetz, R-UT
"Reclaiming my time, I feel, Mr. Speaker, that this is a colossal waste of time to recognize sports heroes. That is a separate subject. That is a separate subject. Last week I voted against Joe Paterno, for goodness’ sakes, one of the great football coaches in this country. Chi Chi Rodriguez has accomplished amazing feats. There’s no doubt in my mind about this. But I feel as if the floor of the House of Representatives is being used for Members’ own personal benefits to actually move forward their own foundation. And that is the concern."
