MZone Exclusive: Joe Paterno's New Commercial

Earlier this week, legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was injured during practice when wide receiver Devon Smith ran into him and knocked him over.

The 84-year-old coach suffered injuries to his hip, shoulder and pelvis.  Luckily, he's okay and is set to return to practice on Wednesday.

This isn't the first time Joe Pa has been roughed up due to a sideline collision.  In 2006, he broke his leg after being run into during his team's game against Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium.

But as a result of his latest injury, Paterno agreed to shoot a commercial to officially endorse a product he's come to rely on while roaming the Nittany Lion sidelines.

The MZone has obtained an exclusive first look at the ad which is set to air for the first time next weekend during 60 Minutes.

Can we get any healing pictures in honor of JoePa?
(i'm looking for any excuse because i'm hoping this fall we won't be in need of any)

Unfortunately Phil, this is the healing pic for JoePa.

Yeah, but wouldn't a healing pic for Joe Pa look something like this?

Dennis, we better be careful. Not sure if JoePa's heart can take that much excitement.

I cannot believe this woman was actually out in public. I do not go to the beach anymore. When I do, after a short time a bunch of people show up and try to roll me back into the water.

I thought that only happened to me.
