If you pay any attention to me at all you may know I'm a little overzealous when it comes to Duke and Penn State. That being said, a month or so ago when I heard this rumor that ESPN was going to do a special on Joe Paterno and Mike Krzyzewski I about went through the roof. What a grand idea! Well the time has come for this special to air. This is something that will only happen once in our lifetimes. the two greatest coaches in the history of their respective sports together at once (JoePa is pretty accepted as being the best, Coach K can be argued but in the end I'm sure he'll win).
Unfortunately and ironically I'm going to miss "Difference Makers: Life Lessons with Paterno and Krzyzewski". The unfortunately part is pretty self explanatory, the ironically part comes into play because tomorrow I'm driving to Raleigh/Durham to spend a few days with my cousin and Saturday I'm driving home to Lion Country. So as I'm hitting up these two great men's homes I'll be missing the special I've yearned for.
It's to my understanding that the topics that will be covered are family, leadership, teaching, and excellence. I can't even begin to imagine how insightful this interview will be, definitely must see TV. Once I do get my hands on a copy of this I can not wait to hear the stories JoePa will come out with. JoePa's answers will have to be taken with a grain of salt because we all know he has a tendency to go off topic and never stop talking.
JoePa has definitely had more of a positive influence on my life, but Coach K is such a true person and coach that everyone who listens to him receives a boost in morale. Basically do not miss this, please promise me that I am the only one who has to forfeit the first opportunity to hear these words of wisdom.
June 30th. ESPN. 8:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time). Be there or be square.
