Thousands of people waited outside in the cold for the public viewing of the legendary Joe Paterno. A private viewing was held for former and current players, coaches, friends and family. Then it was open to the public for the majority of the day. The line outside of the Pasquerilla Spiritual wrapped around the building and down the street, at times for blocks.
Former and current football players took shifts standing on either side of the casket through the day.
I was creating a video for the Allentown Morning Call on Tuesday, so those were the few snapshots I took through the afternoon. The video shows how largely attended the viewing was.
