NFL 'discussing' whether to postpone Eagles-Vikings game in Philadelphia
Is there a chance that tonight's nationally-televised game between the Minnesota Vikings and Eagles might be postponed because of the near-blizzard conditions that are expected to envelop Philadelphia?
Michael Nutter, the city's mayor, has issued a snow emergency to start at 2 p.m. and is urging people to stay home.
Here's the latest, via Twitter, from NFL spokesman Greg Aiello:
If you're the Vikings, sure, you live in Minnesota, but at this point you've got to be ready to give Mother Nature a clothesline to the kisser after the collapse of the Metrodome roof forced you to play a home game in Detroit and to move your final home game outdoors last Monday.
If you're NBC, which opted to flex the game to prime time from its original afternoon kickoff ... cue up "It's a Wonderful Life." Just in case.
DeSean Jackson of the Eagles wants to play, tweeting: "It's only snow!!!! Let us play... It must b alot of fun... I'm ready let's get it on!!"
