Send us your Joe Paterno tributes

The tributes are coming in from around the sports world and beyond for former Penn State coach Joe Paterno, who died earlier Sunday in State College, Pa., at 85. Paterno impacted so many lives during his extensive career, and the incredible number of tributes reflect as much.

We would like to hear from you, too. Send us your Paterno tributes, stories and thoughts here and here and we'll post some of them later on.
