Jack Wagner Elimination from Dancing With The Stars

"We were doing the best we can," Jack Wagner said. "We're disappointed. It's shocking! I think anybody who would have gotten eliminated tonight would have been pretty shocked because all of the scores were so good. So it's us and we move on, life's not going to end, hopefully. We just take some great memories."
After Tuesday's elimination round on DWTS, fans were shocked to see one of their favorites leave the show. Jack Wagner along with partner Anna Trebunskaya was sent packing.

Monday's episode of Dancing With The Stars was emotional. Each celebrity selected a song from their most memorable year. With emotions running high, they were all on top of their game, Jack Wagner included.

Wagner shared his memorable year of meeting his daughter for the first time. The 52-year-old actor danced the Samba to "Lighting Up the Night." It was a fitting tribute to celebrate the reunion of his daughter.

With so many great moments and dances that evening, it was hard to say goodbye. Yet we all know the the rules of this reality dance competition.

The one with the lowest score goes home. 

Unfortunately it was Jack Wagner, the former General Hospital soap heart-throb.  Fans of the GH and Melrose Place actor were disappointed to see him go, but the show must go on.

DWTS continues Monday night, April 9, 2012.

Joe Paterno Dead at 85

The legendary former Penn State coach passed away Sunday, Joe Paterno dead at 85.

The Paterno family released this statement announcing his death:
"He died as he lived. He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been. His ambitions were far reaching, but he never believed he had the leave this Happy Valley to achieve them. He was a man devoted to his family, his university, his players and his community."

The Penn State community gathered at Joe's statue to prayer and light candles. On Saturday, announcements came that Paterno's health was serious. The cancer was taking its toll on the former coach and the outlook looked grim. On Sunday, the news came.

During his career, Paterno won on the field 409 games, took his team to 37 bowl games and two national championship games. Over 250 football players that he coached went on to play in the NFL.
Paterno once said, "Believe deep down in your heart that you're destined to do great things."
In so many ways, the beloved coach lived by his own words.

"He will go down as the greatest football coach in the history of the game," said Urban Meyer, Ohio State's coach.

Paterno was stricken with lung cancer soon after his firing over the Jerry Sandusky scandal broke. After the scandal of Sandusky's alleged sexual abuse of 10 young boys, the coach had this to say.
"This is a tragedy. It is one of the great sorrows of my life," Paterno said. "With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more."
The former Penn State coach was loved by many. Paterno's death leaves a gaping hole for all those who loved him.
