Well, Homer remembers the Ice Bowl game, and Lombardi and Jerry Kramer and all that. But he also remembers there was no OSHA back then, and fewer lawyers.

The last time Homer saw an NWS forecast that stopped him in his tracks like this one was the last week of August, 2005, when a forecaster in the New Orleans Office put out a warning of unprecedented destruction and saying that life as we know it would be impossible for months in areas directly hit by Hurricane Katrina.

These NWS guys don't mess around.

Homer is sick and tired of the wussification that has become the National Flag Football League. But this is weather that - as Garrison Keillor once said - "makes a serious attempt to kill you.

So, gang, whaddya do? Postpone? Move indoors to Minnesota? Play as scheduled?
