Hurricane Sandy is doing her best to be an absolute pain in the ass for everyone on the East Coast, and it looks like she’s having great success thus far.Since Monday, 130 km/h winds have cut power to more than six million homes and businesses, leaving many east coast cities from Ohio to the Carolinas looking like ghost towns. New York has been the hardest hit along the coast, shutting down the NYSE, flooding the subway, and putting the entire city on hold until further notice.Welp, everywhere is closed but Equinox, apparently. Yes, I have a friend who will trek to the gym while trees are being uprooted and the façades of buildings are ripped off by hurricane winds. She lives her life like a No Fear shirt. No. Days. Off.The NFL League Office either isn’t as dedicated to excellence or is taking the storm much more seriously. Roger Goodell has extended the trade deadline to Thursday in an effort to avoid any issues that might arise in getting deals done as a result of the hurricane. You know, little things that come up like finding a new home or an open liquor store.While Goodell exercises his critical thinking ability, other notable New Yorkers are comfortable with taking a more passive cognitive route to get them through the storm.Sideline princess and pop culture icon Erin Andrews has fallen victim to another social media prank, gawking at a picture of the Statue of Liberty being raped by a storm. The only thing is, it wasn’t legitimate rape—it was cinematic rape.Here is Andrews’ tweet after being wowed by David Ortiz’s screen grab of a scene from The Day After Tomorrow. Breaking news? Not really. The reason I bring this up is three-fold:1. Um, really? You fall for this but you question the authenticity of Justin Verlander’s shirt? Clearly, the girl has brains because she correctly assumed the probability of photoshop when it came to a sports-related head scratcher, but the ridiculousness of her retweet showed how common sense just isn’t all that common anymore. 2. This incidence, and Andrew’s response to the twitter police, actually made me like her even more. Not only did she leave up her original tweet where she clearly had a small lapse in judgment when reposting, but she then retweeted people poking fun at her oversight. She knows she is pretty enough, and famous enough, that she doesn’t have to be down-to-earth, but she still has a good sense of humor about herself, proving again why she is every guy’s dream girl. 3. The third reason is pretty obvious—page views. I’m not above gratuitous coverage of anything Erin Andrews does. I’m actually not above gratuitous coverage of anything Kate Upton, Paulina Gretzky, Hope Solo, or any other keywords I can use to get clicks because of the implied promise of T&A. Sorry I’m not sorry. But in all seriousness, stay safe people, and look at the bright side of this all: The presidential campaign is on hold for the week and twitter and facebook feeds are full of end-of-world movie stills and warm thoughts, not ridiculous political vitriol. That’s about the biggest win you could’ve hoped to get out of any of this. Take it and run.
