Count Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell among those who were surprised — even disgusted — by the National Football League’s decision to cancel Sunday night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings due to inclement weather.
In an interview with a Philly radio station, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee said “We’ve become a nation of wusses.”
“The Chinese are kicking our butt in everything,” Rendell profoundly added. “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.”
The NFL rescheduled Sunday night’s game to tonight after forecasters predicted a blizzard would hit during the game, potentially stranding spectators.
