For the second time in a week, another sporting event in Pennsylvania has been postponed due to bad weather. The NHL's Winter Classic between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals has been moved from 1 pm to 8 pm tonight to avoid forecasted rain. Earlier this week, Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell called America a "nation of wussies" for postponing the Eagles vs Vikings game after a state of emergency was declared on Sunday.

If this game were in China, you can bet it wouldn't have been moved. In fact, that stadium would be full of people with waterproof calculators doing math for fun. At least in Ed Rendell's world that's what would happen.
