Ed Rendell On Postponed Eagles-Vikings Game: 'I Think It Is A Joke'

Posted: Updated:

In a live interview with Fox 29 News on Sunday night in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell was furious with the NFL for postponing the Eagles-Vikings game.

"I think it is a joke," Rendell said, explaining that there was only five inches of snow on the ground when the game would have started. "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."

The game was supposed to be played on Sunday night, but it was moved to Tuesday for safety concerns.

Later in the interview, Rendell began to argue with chief meteorologist John Bolaris about how much snow had fallen in Philadelphia.

Bolaris said that there was actually seven inches of snow on the ground at 7 p.m., but Rendell disagreed.

"No, that was at 8:30 according to FEMA," Rendell argued. "This is no way, shape or form a blizzard!"
