Greg Garrity is just one of the Nittany Lions who made a special trip to share his tales about the Joe We Know. Nearly seventy men traveled to 5 different cities in the northeast to tell their stories about days in “The Grand Experiment” and how it has shaped their life. The reunions at the sites were magical.

Nearly 70 forty minute interviews, 5 cities, in 12 days. “The Joe We Know” Crew took it to the streets to find out what men had done with the lessons learned during their time in “The Grand Experiment. Back roads, cheap motels, fast food, long hours and repeated set up and tear down of the film set. How did it happen?

The Premiere

“The Joe We Know” premiered on Saturday, February 18


TicketThe project plan called for the Premiere of the film “The Joe We Know” on Saturday, February 18, 2011 for Coach Paterno, his wife Sue, and their entire family in the presence of former players, coaches, managers and their families at the beautiful State Theatre in downtown State College, PA. The project intention was to show the film at a belated birthday party for Coach.

The untimely passing of Coach Paterno on Sunday, January 22, 2012, three days after the completion of filming for the project, triggered the largest gathering in Happy Valley of former players in the football program’s history. Men from all decades drove and flew from throughout the country to pay respects to Coach Paterno, Sue, and their family. It’s estimated nearly 1100 players visited State College in the three days of services.

On Sue Paterno’s birthday, February 14th (Valentine’s Day), she was surprised with a 5 lb heart shaped box of chocolate, a film ticket lanyard, and a showing of the film with her daughter Mary Kay in a small private theatre in State College. The film was presented to the full Paterno Family on Saturday, February 18th along with former players, coaches, managers and their families at The State Theatre.

Created as a gift for Joe’s belated birthday party, it was a special delivery on Sue’s birthday.
