The extended forecast is calling for temperatures in the 20s with snow flurries on Saturday in Wiscsonsin.
Think that might have an effect?
Coach Mike Holmgren doesn't. At least he said it doesn't, but it sounded very much like the coach was trying to use the Jedi mind trick to erase any doubts that were flaring up.
Here's the transcript of the exchange:
Q: The issue of the weather in Green Bay.
Holmgren: Is there an issue? What issue?
Q: How the cold temperatures can affect the game.
Holmgren: It will not affect the game at all. Weather will not be an issue.
I immediately thought of "Star Wars" when Obi-Wan Kenobi informs the Imperial troopers that these are not the droids they are looking for and then the troopers dutifully repeat that very line.
