The NFL will not play its games this weekend. As confirmed by the league office, the NFL will postpone or cancel games for the first time ever for a non-strike reason.
Frankly, I think this is patently stupid and, frankly, playing right into the hands of the cowards that perpetrated this crime. This wasn't meant to kill as many people as possible, although they certainly managed to do that. This attack was not on individuals but on the way of life we enjoy in this country. It was meant to rattle our consumer confidence. It was meant to make us ruin the things that make this country great. They want us to go and hunt down those that look Arabic. It was intended to strike us such that we're unable to enjoy the little things in life: like sports.
I say, to hell with them. We should play to show them we are unbowed. We should play because it would provide us with a few hours of much-needed levity. We should play because it is what we do. Stopping the games this weekend concede yet one more victory to these cowards, as they have dictated to us one more element of our lives. I think the NFL leadership is cowardly, and is succumbing to FDR's fear: fear itself.
