We’re unfamiliar with Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell’s politics … but we couldn’t agree more with his take on the National Football League’s controversial decision to cancel Sunday’s night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.
“It goes against everything that football is all about,” the soon-to-be-former Keystone State chief executive said Monday on a radio show in Philadelphia.
“My biggest beef is that this is part of what’s happened in this country,” Rendell added. “I think we’ve become wussies.”
“We’ve become a nation of wusses,” he continued. “The Chinese are kicking our butt in everything. If this was in China do you think the Chinese would have called off the game? People would have been marching down to the stadium, they would have walked and they would have been doing calculus on the way down.”
Um … he’s right.
We understand the fact that recent games have been postponed due to damaged stadiums, but the last time we checked bad weather at a stadium was not an acceptable excuse.
