Sandusky scandal takes another bizarre turn

What do you do if you've been charged with sexual acts with minors? If you're former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, you do an interview on national television and admit that you've showered with kids.

From there, we're to believe Sandusky did nothing wrong.

I watch with stunned silence the denials from Sandusky during his interview with Bob Costas. To me, Sandusky sounded cold and calculating.

What really was revealing was Sandusky's reply to this Costas question: Are you sexually attracted to young boys?

After an uncomfortable pause of about two seconds, Sandusky tells us he's not, but he enjoys being around young boys.

I was expecting a defiant, "No!" Instead, Sandusky said, " I enjoy young people, I love to be around them, but, no, I’m not sexually attracted to young boys.

The whole setting for the interview was out of normal as well. Costas interviewed Sandusky by phone while Sandusky's attorney was seated next to Costas.

Give Costas credit, he conducted a fair interview and asked the tough and uncomfortable questions.

Sandusky's answers, however, didn't help his defense, in my opinion.

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
