Fear of Jersey traffic jam cancels Super Bowl plans

OlympiaJanuary 29, 2014 

I ’m a 71-year-old Vietnam veteran who thought the pinnacle of his life would be to go to the Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks. I now find out the Super Bowl is in New Jersey, and I have to cancel my plans because I have a serious prostate problem and have to use the bathroom every three hours. Where would I be if someone in Gov. Christie’s office flicked a switch and created a traffic jam at the bridge leading to the stadium that kept me in my car for six hours? I’d be in a tight spot!
