"Jewish Elvis" latest victim of Sandusky Scandal

Taking down Paterno's statue was just a mere harbinger of things to come in (not so) Happy Valley. Now Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline will not be played at Penn State home games.
The Jerry Sandusky sex scandal continues to reverberate at Penn State.
The latest shock from the scandal that resulted in the ouster of coach Joe Paterno and crushing NCAA penalties involves the in-game music selection.
The athletic association has banned the playing of the Neil Diamond classic “Sweet Caroline,” which has become a staple at many sporting events. University officials were concerned because of a line in the song that goes “touching you, touching me,” according to the Allatoona Mirror newspaper. (h/t JMMDawg)
Somehow the good times never seemed so good.
