It was about 14 degrees outside. Something like that. By the time I got back, my face felt like rubber. My skin was so cold I could barely form words.
Moreso than usual, even. Beat you to it, Steve.
That got me to thinking: when it's really cold out for a football game, that must happen to the coach and quarterback, too. Do they take that into account when choosing terminology?
I mean, when they call plays, especially at the pro level, it takes a few seconds. It's like a dozen-word process. "Seventy-two split draw fake left fourteen option spaceship Marsha claw." Stuff like that.
I just wonder: do they choose words that will be easy to pronounce - and understand - after you've spent three hours out in single-digit temperatures?
