It was a scary, mixed-up week in New York and surrounding areas, and a relatively quiet week in sports. Hurricane Sandy postponed the Knicks-Nets season opener until late November, so both teams will play their first games this weekend. The Red Bulls are playing an unscheduled away game. The Giants game on Sunday is still on, at least for now. The biggest and most recent cancellation, of course, is that of the New York City Marathon.
Thankfully, not all this week's stories were Hurricane Sandy–related (or whatever hurricane that was).
- Mike Baxter's old teammate was up to some creepy stuff.
- The Yankees did their best to smooth things over with A-Rod.
- We lost Amar'e Stoudemire to yet another knee surgery.
- Mikhail Prokhorov said some funny stuff, as is his wont.
It wasn't the best of weeks. We hope y'all are feeling as safe and comfortable as possible post-storm and wish you a pleasant, recuperative weekend.
