I did a couple of posts on this last year during Irene but figured I’d throw this up there again. Living in the Northeast we are amateurs at dealing with Hurricane threats but there are some common sense thing everyone should be doing to prepare.
Here they are in no particular order:
Have plenty of bottled water available. If there are power outages because of flooding it will get hot inside the house.
Have plenty of non-perishable snacks. We loaded up on chips, crackers, cookies, etc. These are things that won’t go bad and if nothing happens these aren’t things that will go to waste. No sense throwing away money at canned goods that you will never use.
Flashlights and a battery operated radio should be a must although I have to be honest I don’t know if any radio of ours actually work.
Car charger for your cellphones is a good bet. If you lose power at least you can go charge your phone in the car.
If you’re from a part of the country that regularly experiences hurricanes, stop mocking people in the northeast for how they are acting. We know how you guys act with a quarter of an inch of snow.
At some point they will just have to eat the contract and trade him right? I mean what alternative is there when you have Eric Chavez pinch hit for him? He is owed at least $116 million for the next five years.
I don’t understand the people saying Ibanez should have hit for him in the 8th inning tonight? How does that make any sense? The Orioles would’ve intentionally walked Raul Ibanez to face Nick Swisher. So the question really becomes would you rather have A-Rod hit or Swisher? Cano, Granderson and Swisher should be thankful that A-Rod as usual will get all the blame when they have done absolutely nothing.

I’ve written on the subject in the past and here is one more entry into the file. I drove into Manhattan earlier today to get food from one of the few Halal KFC’s in the US.
My sister and I ended up paying extra (like we usually do) just so we would have a bucket just of breast pieces. The cashier went to speak to the manager just to see if there were enough Halal pieces in stock to fulfill our order and came back to tell us that it’d have to be a mix of Extra Crispy and Original to fulfill our order of a dozen breast pieces. We were fine with that. When we got back home buried at the bottom of the box were a couple of pieces of grilled chicken instead. Not cool. I didn’t drive all the way into the city (or pay extra for that matter) just to get grilled chicken. I don’t eat healthy at home so I certainly won’t go out somewhere and do it! I ended up calling their customer service and “Bobby” was really nice over the phone and told me he’d pass it up the chain of command. I have also tried to contact them via Twitter. Hopefully someone calls back and at least refunds part of the bill (if not all). Basic customer service. If they are willing to lie about what pieces they are giving me why should I or anyone else trust that they are actually giving me Halal chicken?
This KFC is located at 208 McGuinness Boulevard Brooklyn, NY 11222
Yes, I understand that this is a first world problem but a corporation as big as Kentucky Fried Chicken should no tolerate this from their franchisees. Will someone from KFC contact me? I’ll keep you updated. As always you can leave a comment here, reach me by e-mail or .
January 1st 2013. Absolutely looking forward to this. I have to figure out a way to be at this game. There will be something like 115,000 people there. The event will be be a major boost to economy in Detroit and the surrounding areas.
What possible matchups do you want to see in the future and where? As always you can leave a comment here, reach me by e-mail or .
This time around I don’t think it’ll take one of the most exciting plays in Super Bowl history to do it but I think the Giants win again. I am almost cringing making this pick because if the Giants win there will be foolish people out there who will want to say that Eli is a better quarterback then Peyton. I just know this will happen. Whether it is callers (or even hosts on WFAN) or football fans in general, you just know there is a segment of the population that will say it. It really is a shame that Peyton Manning never got to play with a defense that was consistently as good as the one Brady (and Roethlisberger) got early in their careers.
Everyone (outside of Las Vegas) seems to be picking the Giants to win this time around and that scares me. It hasn’t been said much over the course of Tom Brady’s career but Eli Manning is the better quarterback right now. I think the Giants pass rush gets to Tom Brady again and forces a couple of turnovers. I have thought for two weeks that we’ll see Chad Ochocinco make an impact in this game. I still think that is the case. It would be typical Bill Belichick.
I liked the commercial overall despite you know who being there in the end. If you follow me on Twitter you already know much I dislike this individual. As always you can leave a comment here, reach me by e-mail or .
