I can almost guarantee that any of the people complaining about the "wuss" factor in cancelling the game... if any of those people were caught in a snowstorm, stranded and couldn't drive their car... and were nowhere near their home... they'd be complaining. Where's my free ride home? Where's my free room + board since I can't go home? Where's my refund for dealing with this?

Guaranteed there would have been lots of complaints if the game hadn't been cancelled and the elements combined to trap 50000 people in the stadium overnight.

Eagles workers leave pile of snow in governor's seat

I saw that on TV... and noted that the governor didn't sit in that seat. He in fact, sat in another adjacent seat for which he didn't have a ticket.

So he couldn't even muster up enough to clear out 1 seat... but he thought it was "wussy" to cancel the game during the blizzard?

And he probably could have been ejected from the game for sitting in the wrong seat :)
