Late this evening or early tomorrow morning, Hurricane Sandy, will make landfall in New England. The current trajectory has the massive storm reaching New Jersey and if Snookie and company didn’t do enough damage, likely destroying much of the Jersey Shore. The cost of the storm is expected to be well over over $7 billion in wind damage alone, and it will impact nearly 60 million people (that is roughly 1 of every 5 people in the US).
What isn’t being reported is the potential of another Hurricane Sandy making landfall again next Friday. Sandy is expected to hit New York City on November 9th and cause massive amounts of damage inside the newly built Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn and take with it many from Maryland.
Of course, this Hurricane Sandy won’t carry much precipitation, other than some possible tears of the Maryland players and fans, but it is likely to wreck as much havoc on the Terps National Championship hopes as the aforementioned storm currently barring down on the Eastern Sea Board is on the people that live there.
See, while Sandy is the shortened form of the female name Sandra. What most people don’t realize is that Sandy is also the shortened form of the male name Alexander, or more commonly refered to as Alex, and not only does Kentucky have an Alex on their team, but he will likely be the most prominent point producer on the court for the Wildcats this year.
The then ESPN’s #17 ranked prospect Poythress signed with Kentucky nearly a year to the date (November 10, 2011) of the game in which he will make his regular season debut. Although he has yet to be seen playing any NCAA competition outside of his own team (including this amazing dunk), he has managed to find himself among good company being named by the media to the All-SEC 2nd team.
A lot will be seen on how the storm shapes up and looks against Transylvania and Northwood (Fla), but be prepared New York and Maryland and know that this advisory could become a warning very quickly.
