Philly’s Wussy-Bowl

I have to agree with Pennsylvania’s Governor Ed Rendell, we are a nation of wussies.

For the first time since the 1940’s, a football game will be played on Tuesday night. This is due to the blizzard that occurred up and down the eastern seaboard over the weekend.

Now, I hate the cold. I would NEVER go to a game in this type of weather, however, this is what football is all about. We all remember watching the old NFL films of “the frozen tundra.” This is classic football. What about now you ask? Now we are a feel-good, everybody wins/nobody loses kind of society. This is about more than a football game. This speaks to our society as a whole.

You may think I am over-reacting, but I think not. As I seem to be saying it a lot lately, we need to “man-up” as a country. We can start with the simple things. Like having guys who make a boat load of money actually play football in the snow. Vince Lombardi must be spinning in his grave.
