Hurricane Sandy Affecting Giants/Steelers Game?

Giants Rush Back to New York To Beat Storm

The Pittsburgh Steelers play the Giants at Giant Stadium this coming Sunday.   Is there any reason to be concerned?Will Giants and Steelers game be impacted by Hurricane Sandy

It may be too early to tell, but we do know that the Giants rushed to leave Dallas as soon as the game was over in an attempt to be able to land before Hurricane Sandy made it impossible to do so.

This is not the first time the Giants have been affected.

In 2010, the Giants had to be diverted to Kansas City due to a snowstorm in Minnesota.   They were to play the Vikings, when the Metrodome roof collapsed.   They ended up playing the Vikings in Detroit.

In the same season, the Giants had to spend a few nights in Appleton, Wisc., after a game against the Packers due to a snowstorm on the East Coast.

“Once you get up in the air, you don’t know where they’re going to divert you to,” Mara said of any potential contingency plans. “Maybe we’ll go back to Appleton, Wisconsin.”

Let’s hope that everything will be safe and the Steelers and Giants will be able to play.   More importantly, however, we hope that everyone is safe and New York can get back to normal as soon as possible.
