Sports briefs: Joepa gone wild?

Penn State football coach Joe Paterno says an angry exchange of words with another motorist has spiraled out of control due to Internet rumors. JoePa said he blew his horn at a woman who he said drove through a stop sign. He then pulled up next to her and said some words. Her husband knocked on Paterno’s window and the two exchanged more words.

Braves architect moves up

The man who built the once-moribund Atlanta Braves into a team that won 14 straight division titles and one World Series is taking a new job. John Schuerholz, who recently turned 67, is stepping up from his role as general manager and will become the Braves’ president. Frank Wren, who has been the assistant general manager, was named GM. “Obviously, John has done an unbelievable job with the organization and this team,” Braves right fielder Jeff Francoeur said. “He definitely deserves to retire and enjoy what he’s accomplished. It’s sad, because we didn’t want to see him go.” After their run of 14 straight division titles, the Braves have missed the playoffs the past two seasons, finishing third third in the NL East each year. During that stretch, the Braves lost four World Series and four times in the NL Championship Series.
