There is a raging debate in my home of New York this week about if it makes sense to run the New York Marathon on Sunday as if Superstorm Sandy never happened.
"We feel like we can spark New York," Bradshaw said, via The Star-Ledger. "Just what we do, what we've done. I think we can also help everybody in New York and New Jersey that's going through this."
I don't have a strong opinion on the matter. It's a complicated and not particularly important issue in the scheme of things. People raging about if a marathon runs is the real world equivalent of us NFL media types constantly talking about Tim Tebow. It's a side dish that sells.
It feels a little post-apocalyptic right now in lower Manhattan, still in darkness after four days. Nerves are frayed. It is so much worse in New Jersey, Long Island and Staten Island, where people are just worried about survival and the long process of rebuilding.
"People are devastated and you think, 'Where do you start?' A foot of sand in your living room, water up to the top of your steps ... If we can provide something like that (an uplift), yes," Coughlin said, via the New York Daily News. "But do we fully comprehend what's happened? I know I don't. I see the mess and that's the thing I see is that hasn't even started to get cleaned up."
Harrison: Week 9 predictions
Sunday's game will be an emotional one for many in the area after a very long week. Many of those hardest hit by the storm won't be able to watch.
We suspect the fans who are able to watch will be very glad the game is played.
