"My biggest beef is that this is part of what's happened in this country," Rendell said. "I think we've become wussies."
"We've become a nation of wusses. The Chinese are kicking our butt in everything," Rendell 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."
Oh, those Chinese, always marching, always doing calculus. No doubt that the Shanghai Eagles would have played the Guangzhou Vikings regardless of the inclement weather, and all of the football players probably would have been doing calculus in their heads the entire game, too. That's what Chinese people do. I once dated a Chinese girl; once I tried to start a conversation that wasn't about calculus, so she marched. [Cf. Kanye West - "So Appalled"]. I have also heard that in China, all of the months are called "March," except for October, which is called "Calculus."
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabiao could not be reached for comment as he was too busy marching and doing calculus.
