All week, local media outlets have looked for ties to Philadelphia in the Penn State scandal.
Well, it's been discovered- and in a big way.
For those that may not now, the Second Mile is the organization ran by Jerry Sandusky, and was the place where he met most of the boys he sexual molested.
Below is the list of members of the Second Mile's Honorary Board. Now, what involvement the members have is unknown, but with rumors circulating today that Sandusky may have "pimped out" boys from the organization, it is certainly not something anyone would want to be associated with.
Here is the list from the Second Mile website:
That's right, perhaps the best two coaches in Philadelphia Eagles history (Andy Reid and Dick Vermeil) were both associated in the organization in some capacity.
Obviously, this in no way implys that they had anything to do with that was going on. Likely Reid and Vermeil are on so many "honorary boards" that they could loose count.
But still, their is nothing more toxic then being associated with Sandusky these days, so you have to think Reid and Vermeil would not want this out.
Another big name include Matt Millien from ESPN, who cried openly on TV about the horror of the situation and about how he would handle things himself with Sandusky if he got the chance.
Mark Wahlberg and Franco Harris are also two well known people that are on the board.
