Now that the Coach Joe Paterno Statue no longer has glasses, we'd love to see Coach Paterno use this opportunity to switch to contact lenses.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) January 9, 2009
After reading about how an apparent hooligan stole the famed dark-rimmed glasses from the Coach Joe Paterno Statue outside of Beaver Stadium this past Monday, the online contact lens company http://www.clecontactlenses.com has offered to donate a pair of new Joe Paterno styled glasses to replace the stolen rims.
After hearing about this, Dr. Jay Stockman and Dr. Brian Lewy of CLE Contact Lenses and Michael Starvaggi, Esq. the President of Eye Care Associates, LLC (the company that owns Contact Lenses) were appalled.
"Joe Paterno is an American legend and his trademark, coke-bottle glasses are an icon of the style and class of a man who has defined what winning should mean in College athletics" said Dr. Jay Stockman from his offices in New York City. "After talking with my partners, we felt the only right thing to do was to replace the glasses as soon as possible."
The company's President, Michael Starvaggi went on to say: "We can only hope to emulate Coach Joe Paterno's success at our online company and want to honor his living legacy with this small gesture."
The company's Vice President of Sales, Steve Lella said: "Now that the Coach Joe Paterno Statue no longer has glasses, we'd love to see Coach Paterno use this opportunity to switch to contact lenses." He went on to add that… "we will gladly donate a lifetime supply of the contact lenses of his choice to Coach if he ever decides to switch to contact lenses."
The company's partners would like to encourage the person at Penn State or Beaver Stadium responsible for replacing these glasses to contact them at 1-877-536-7373 or online at President1 (at) clecontactlenses.com to arrange for the fabrication and replacement of these glasses.
