Joe Flacco on having a cold NY Super Bowl: 'I think it's retarded'

We're in the final stretch towards Super Bowl XLVII, and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco just firmly inserted his foot in his mouth.

While giving his thoughts on the NFL preparing for next year's Super Bowl in New York during the cold wintery month of February, he said "Yeah, I think it's retarded," during his Super Bowl press gathering.

Oops...he said the 'R' word. That's a definite no no in this day in age, and Flacco knew it, saying right after, "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."

In this P.C. world, we're not going to hear the end of this for the rest of the week. His faux paux will most likely bring out the picket signs and protesters outside of the Super Dome. That's the world we're living in folks.
