How Old is Papa Benny?

December 21st, 2010, Promulgated by b a

Just how old is Papa Benny?  About 4 months younger than this guy:


As reported on my favorite Pittsburgh sports blog Joe Paterno, the long standing head coach of Penn State football, is 84 years old today. See – the Catholic Church isn’t the only organization in the world with an “old guy” at the helms.

This warrants a poll:

Which job is more demanding?
Pope of the universal Church
College Football Head Coach

(note: Although from PA, I am not a PSU fan or a joepa fan. Joe Paterno ended one of the best rivalries in college football – Pitt versus Penn State. He has yet to reconcile that.)

    I just tried to vote (for the first time) and got a message telling me,

    You cannot vote repeatedly.

    There seems to be a glitch somewhere.

    Thanks, Mike. I just switched the poll to use CF’s already established polling software. I believe it’s working now.
