While talking to the media on Monday, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was asked what he thought about next year’s cold weather Super Bowl in New York/New Jersey.
“Yeah, I think it’s retarded,” Flacco said, per the New York Daily News. “I probably shouldn’t say that. I think it’s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than that, I don’t really like the idea. I don’t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather.”
Flacco could have used a better word than “retarded,” because we would have also understand the word “dumb” if he chose to use that instead.
