Ed Rendell's Frozen Brain

     When Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell went ballistic because the NFL Sunday night game was moved and rescheduled for tonight because of the big blizzard, he made a great point. But not the one that he wanted to make about the U.S. being a "nation of wusses".

     The point he made was that we take football way, way too seriously.

     Come on! To say America isn't the same country that won World War II because a game was rescheduled? Does he really think that weather would stop the U.S. military from fighting in an actual war?

     It's a game, Governor...a game!

     I suppose he feels the same way about the NFL's sudden found concern about concussions and brain injury. Wusses! Let 'em play hurt! Let 'em develop addled brains! Play the game!

     And let's make sure that the High Schools play under all weather conditions too, the hell with tornado warnings or floods or lightening. Get those kids out on the field to toughen 'em up for the real life world of the NFL! In fact let's remove those wussy helmets too...let 'em wear the leather caps that were popular back in the day!

     OK, I'll get off the soap box now.

     Your turn.
