LOL: Philly Fans Clown Governor Ed Rendell With “Non-Wussies” Seat During Eagles-Vikings Game
After Pennslyvania Governor Ed Rendell took some shots at the NFL, Eagles and the Mayor of Philadelphia this weekend for postponing what was supposed to be a Sunday Night matchup against Vikings until Tuesday after concerns of a potential blizzard. Rendell is a longtime season ticket holder
Even though the weather cleared up the move didn’t end up benefitting the Eagles, as they tricked off a chance at a bye.
Rendell made some pretty questionable remarks during multiple rants through the beginning of this week, including some borderline racist comments about the Chinese and calculus.
Naturally Rendell pissed off some people in the Eagles organization, mainly owner Jeff Lurie, with his adamant opposition to postponing the matchup 2 days, playing only the 2nd regular-season game on a Tuesday in League history. So the Eagles paid him back by piling a heap of snow on a seat with a sign that read “THIS SEAT RESERVED FOR NON-WUSSIES.”
Those who got clowned by Rendell, have insinuated that he is an attention whore, but in this particular situation Rendell did make some valid arguments, as the blizzard that the city was bracing for ended up being weaker than baby’s piss, making the Eagles and Philly look soft for not wanting to play in the snow.
But if the blizzard did hit harder than that new Dr. Dre track, guaranteed Rendell would have felt like a douche.
