Holding the World Cup in Qatar

FIFA has announced that they won't stage the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 during the summer because the average temperature is 106 degrees.  So, they'll try to move it into the November-January time frame, thus interrupting soccer leagues' schedules everywhere.

One would have thought that while it got drunk on the "internationalization" of the World Cup, FIFA still would have been sober enough to figure out that it's too darn hot in the summer time in Qatar.  You would have thought that with all the political types who serve on FIFA, they would have been savvy enough to figure out that it's too darn hot in the summer time in Qatar.  Honestly, what were they thinking?

Sounds about as bright as holding the Super Bowl in the New York area in February.

Perhaps FIFA and the NFL are related.
