"I felt we made a mistake in building a baseball field. I thought that should have been the ice skating rink, because I think hockey in this state right now, not just hockey, but ice skating, if you come up to our office building at 6:00 in the morning, some mornings you can't get a parking spot because parents have taken their kids up here to skate...I think hockey will be a great addition to our intercollegiate program. [The Pegula gift] is a great, great gift. And I think very far-sighted and I'm really pleased with it." - Joe Paterno

I'm not normally one for the short-form post, but this is definitely worthy of it: it's Guy Gadowsky's 1992-1993 Richmond Renegades (ECHL) card. I recently purchased the team set on eBay specifically to get this card because...well, why not?

Gadowsky was actually a playing coach on the team, putting up 19 goals and 35 points in 19 games. Not too shabby. The coaching side of things - this was his first attempt at it, if I'm not mistaken - worked out okay for him too.
