I was enjoying the football championship game last week, and cheering the home team on.
- I could hardly recognize that our favorite team was going to the Super Bowl once more.
I was shivering and shaking in the stands, but I was dressed in layers. When I looked down at the football players, some of them had bare arms and legs. It was snowing and freezing, and I wondered how they could have exposed skin and still be strolling around as if it was a Spring day. I noticed that when some of the men went off the field, they put coats on, however that’s when I also saw the space heating units. It was our first time enjoying a game from the stands, and I was seeing a lot more than I had ever seen on TV. I was talking to our pal Tim who was at the game with me, and I asked if he had seen the space heaters. Tim rolled his eyeah and simply said, no duh. Tim could not recognize I thought they would kneel on the benches and get stiff from the cold. Tim said the players needed the space furnaces or they would be too cold to play properly. The players fingers would get stiff, their joints would get stiff, and even their eyes would freeze. I thought Tim was full of it, but I didn’t question the reasons for the space heaters. I was blissful that they had them off field. I should have noticed space furnaces when watching the game on TV. Now that I guess about it, there was little snow or ice near where the players sat.
