About football games causing regular TV programming cancellations and delays: It happens week after week, but no one should even think of voicing any criticism. So what if a football game with 2 minutes remaining on the clock takes over a half hour to play. Heaven forbid that a football broadcast should ever be cancelled or delayed for any reason!! I'm sure that if it ever did happen, mental cases would increase by enormous percentages all over the country. Look at the hysteria over the possible delay of the super bowl because of the weather.
