Welcome to what will be this week’s only edition of Caption This given the Thanksgiving-truncated schedule. That’s Penn State coach Joe Paterno at a pep rally on Friday, the day before the Nittany Lions clinched the Rose Bowl with a 49-18 win over Michigan State. It was also two days before JoePa had his hip replaced.

Feel free to supply a suggested caption in the comments section. I will post some selections this evening. Remember, clever > cruel (and likely better than your standard "lawn-clearing" line).

(UPDATED)

Here's a Sweet 16, with special mention to Mark G for his impressive quantity of worthy entries:

“While Paterno's football coaching skills have been questioned over the past few years, students still turn out in droves for his fencing class.” (Tim in NY; gill worked on the same line)

“I have to learn to step if I'm ever to get into Alpha Phi Alpha!” (Mark G)

“And every time they come at me with a voluntary resignation letter, I fend them off like this!” (Marshall K.)

“The players start to wonder if maybe it would be more interesting if they actually went to class.” (Zowie)

“The next one of you that sends a text or whatever the heck you call it is getting a size-12 Buster Brown butt-kicking.” (Finsterbaby)

“One very brave Blood dares to sit amidst a sea of Crips.” (Martel)

“Since the Nittany Lion is mythical, Joe is pretending to be a lion tamer.” (BKJ)

“The PSU football team had to sit through yet another JoePa imaginary light sabre battle with Darth Vader.” (skibrock)

“And I would've gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling kids!” (Anthony Verna)

“What about you? Do you know where I live?” (movingtarget)

“I remember a time before computers decided who got to play for the National Championship!” (Munkcy)

“And when I push the button on the handle a shiv comes out the end. It's really cool.” (Rickapolis)

“After being mostly dead for the past decade, JoePa suggested that the next game be ‘to the pain.’” (manta)

“And so I told Moses, you gotta hold onto those tablets, man!” (rock chalk)

“In a senior moment, Joe Paterno forgets where his audience is sitting while he talks.” (fluffy kitten)

“I TELL YA -- WE ARE GOING TO PUT EIGHT IN THE BOX AND STOP THAT RED GRANGE!!!” (Rey’s crew)

"I found this cane in the showers. It smells like crap. Anybody know who this belongs to?"

I think the kid in the gray hoodie, 4 back, in the 2nd row from the right knows why that cane smells!
