Some Philadelphia Eagles fans, including the most important one in the state of Pennsylvania, are incensed that the team's game against the Minnesota Vikings was canceled for a blizzard that didn't pack as much of a wallop as expected on Sunday night.

Governor Ed Rendell joined countless fans upset about the game's move to Tuesday when he told Fox News: 

"It's an absolute joke. I was looking forward to this. It would have been a real experience. This is what football is all about. We're becoming a nation of wussies."

Forecasters had called for a blizzard to hit during the game and for up to 18 inches of snow to fall in the City of Brotherly Love. But the center of the storm tracked east of the city and by the time the game would have been over, there was only about seven or eight inches on the ground. In those conditions, the game could have been played.

Yeah, props to him. Who cares if a few people die on the roads getting to and from the game.

The State of Philadelphia has announced a Code Blue weather emergency, according to the AP, giving state officials the authority to house homeless people in shelters, since the weather poses a threat of serious harm or death.

I failed to look at it from the perspective of a homeless man.  I understand now.

I thought they were doing it to protect Vick and their high-flying offense

I'm glad they don't cancel cold games - woulda missed this gem.  Sorry there was snow.  If it was too dangerous to drive in....don't drive.

He's right.



Authorities had to rescue hundreds of motorists across the region, including about 100 people trying to get back to New York from a gambling trip to Atlantic City.

It was dangerous for fans to be out in that temperature and the roads were all ice. They should have postponed until Easter.
