I'm back bitches.
After a two week hiatus from my Bills previews that saw Apologist and Barrister step up and kill it, I was all ready to bring the mediocre back for a fun-filled, error laden post of shitty takes! However, as I started typing an intro about my hurricane experience, it started to be sort of cathartic, so I just rolled with it. I'm hoping to be back next week with some disturbing football analysis.
I had quite the adventure during Hurricane Sandy. As you may or may not know, I live in Hoboken, New Jersey, which is small town on just the other side of the Hudson River opposite lower Manhattan. It is also known for flooding after only heavy rainstorms, which as you may have seen on the news, made it quite the interesting place after an actual hurricane touched down. (Picture above was the day AFTER the hurricane. That white car was underwater around 1 am.)
Either way, as bad as my little town of Hobken looks right now after the flooding and wind damage, it in no way compares to the devastation that has hit Staten Island and the Rockaways, so whether you have helped out already or not, I urge you to continue on or start now. If you live in the area, donate your time to volunteering (so worth the time, trust me) and if you live far away, consider donating to the Red Cross or perhaps a smaller charity like Team Rubicon, which has done absolutely amazing work in Staten Island thus far. Or just donate supplies and clothes if possible. The Pants, as some may call my fiancee, is dropping another four bags off to local shelters tomorrow, and they are always welcome with open arms. Do your thing, people!
So onto my experience, which again I want to point out, is nothing compared to so many others, but I figured while I have this forum I may as well use it to vent since the last two weeks have sucked hard. I could also use this spot to talk about how going through a hurricane is like watching a Bills/Patriots game, but that's fucking stupid and my name isn't Rick Reilly. So here is a look into the world of the Scizz starting on October 29th.
