All tag results for 'retired'
We're expecting some kind of "wink, wink" or catch that tells us this isn't true…yet.
Lindsay Lohan has announced that her partying days are over. But, she admits that her words hold little weight.
The actress will be appearing on SNL this Saturday and LiLo says that the show is about timeliness and having your affairs in orders.
She states the following about her turnaround:
If he wouldn't have been fired, it looks like health reasons would have forced Joe Paterno to retire this year.
The sick former Penn State football coach has been admitted into the hospital again. His family hopes the stay is brief, but Paterno was hospitalized for minor complications from his ongoing lung cancer treatments just a month after fracturing his pelvis.
Things aren't all bad for the all-time winningest football coach in NCAA Division I history. PSU officials revealed on Thursday that Paterno is still getting paid despite being relieved of his coaching duties last fall after the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal broke.
A statement from Chairman Steve Garban and Vice Chairman John Surma read:
"Coach Paterno remains employed by the university as a tenured faculty member. The details of his retirement are being worked out and will be made public when they are finalized. Generally speaking, the university intends to honor the terms of his employment contract and is treating him financially as if he had retired at the end of the 2011 football season."
We hope this guy's health starts to turn around soon and he's able to beat this cancer! Feel better soon, Joe!

In September of 2001, the New York Rangers were scheduled to hold training camp at Chelsea Piers in NYC and stay in the Marriot Hotel at the World Trade Center.
Fortunately for the 60-man roster, including NHL Hall of Famer Mark Messier, the dressing rooms weren’t adequate and the team was moved to Madison Square Garden. When tragedy struck on one of the darkest days in American history, the NHL team realized they could have just as easily lost their lives on 9/11.
Ten years later, Mark Messier is honoring the families of the victims who could not avoid perishing with the Twin Towers. The retired athlete is running the New York City Marathon on behalf of Tomorrow’s Children Fund, which benefits the wives and widows of the attacks.
Speaking on his commitment to giving back to the victim's families, Messier said:

Guess that's pretty much the end of Jerry's association with the MDA telethon!
Last month, we learned that Jerry Lewis was NOT returning to host this year's Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon, which aired on Sept 4.
We were wondering how the telethon would fare without him, and sure enough it did VERY well!
The MDA telethon brought in its best numbers since 2008, raising $61.5 million, which is $2.6 million more than last year. Impressive!
American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe co-hosted the event with Jann Carl instead of Jerry, and the two said that Lewis had "retired" during their broadcast.
More than anything, we're just glad to see that people are still donating SO MUCH $$$ to this important cause! Truly inspiring!
Thanks for all the years supporting the cause, Jerry! Much appreciated!
