I was starting to feel like an old fogey yelling about how they were tougher in my day. But then Governor Rendell said exactly what I was thinking also. You tell 'em, Rendell. The NFL is turning into a bunch of wussies. Or Philadelphia is or whoever it was that canceled the Eagle/Viking game on Sunday night.
They canceled the game on the THREAT of snow. No snow had even fallen yet and they canceled the game.
The Viking game when the roof fell in, ok then you have a reason for the cancellation. But to cancel an NFL game not because the teams could not get to the venue, not because the stadium was in shambles, but because it might get bad later is the wussiest thing I have ever heard. It's not like Philadelphia has never had a big snow storm before.
This was not Florida or Hawaii. This is the Northeast in December. It is going to snow.
Oh well. To commemorate the time when the NFL still had its cojones here is an impromptu list of some of the best snow games in NFL history.
