Tractor needed to hold down goalpost at NFL playoff site

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jan 10, 2014

Things could be REALLY interesting Saturday at Centurylink Field in Seattle for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks.

You won't just see two football teams, 65,000 super-loud fans and the effects of heavy winds, but a tractor?

Maybe, if the winds are so bad that the stadium has to replicate what it did Friday to keep the goal posts standing in preparation for the game.

Note: We don't know if the tractor will appear on the field during the game. If it does, that could be the most-tweeted pic of the NFL season and a lot of free pub for the manufacturer.
