AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Penn State coach Joe Paterno said Friday he feels fine after going to the hospital this week to be treated for dehydration.
A day after his brief hospital visit, the 81-year-old Paterno was in Austin, attending a dinner at the University of Texas to support an endowed chair named after Longhorns coach Mack Brown.
Paterno cracked jokes with reporters about how his age makes people worry every time he feels the slightest bit ill.
``Yesterday I didn't think this event was getting enough press, I decided to go to the hospital and see if I could spruce it up a bit,'' Paterno said.
