Sorry, but if you're holding on to a post (or anything) to keep yourself from being blown away during a hurricane, than you're brain-dead. Given that, I don't think we should go by her report that the will play the game in Miami. Maybe she HIT her head...or mayber her and Dave Wanstadt bumped heads.

Although....knowing football coaches as I do, they try not to let little things like HURRICANES FROM HELL interrupt their game time. My kids are still playing tomorrow. "Hurricane? What HURRICANE? It ain't gonna hit US!"

doh

I just received this attachment from an airman at Hurlburt Field in Fort Walton Beach, FL. It pretty much sums up how many Floridians feel this year.

The Dolphins will make a final decision on the game based on the 5 pm forecast. For now, it stays as is on Sunday. They are looking at Monday and Tuesday if it has to be postponed. Phil, no Dolphin avatar. Yes, I am a Dolfan but nothing comes before the greatest team in sports history.

Hurricane activity is increasing and the Red Sox are choking.

I know...they are treating this VERY differently from Francis...Are we still talking tommorow late night? No warnings? With Francis, school was cancelled Thrus and Fri and she didn't even come through until Sat. night....

By the way Brian Norcross just told the Dolphins to re-evaluate putting 1000's of people in hazardous driving conditions right after a storm passes. Go Brian!!!!

Coleen,
eeewww. your probably right...

and Richard:
... as far as that "exercise to find a place to put all of the several hundreds of dollars worth of non-perishable food that tastes like yuk and that even the cat refuses to eat, but doesn't rot..."

Can I seriously suggest Haiti?


...*That* isn't even funny...some of those poor folks would KILL for the so called food I complain about. I used to fly down there to the orphanages to distribute donated medicines from drug stores and companies nearing expiration date because often that was the *only* medicine they could get. Our flying club provided the plane and I and other pilots went down there to deliver the stuff. Even years ago, it was heart rendering to see the abject poverty. I can only imagine what it is like now. I complain I have no shoes, till I see one with no feet!

When it hurts so, so much pain, it can't be funny.... When we all come out of this on the other side, your suggestion is an excellent one for real....Don't donate MONEY, that just goes to the politicians and the government graft takers...send merchandise/food instead...that is why I personally flew down ther in the club plane with STUFF...to ensure it got to those that most needed it. Oh, I wish I could still fly!!!! I'd do it again in a heartbeat....Sorry, rant off....

Frances moved very slowly, and didn't loop all over the place.

I'm hearing the same thing. Look for a Tuesday night game. The Steelers will fly back to Pitt tonight and return on Monday for the Tue game. They won't make them fly in Mon and play that night.

You and Phil seem good. Let me ask you a question. With that high pressure ridge, does it look like she will go west all the way towards land and not make that little curve?

Of course the Dolphins want to play the game on Sunday. A hurricane gives them the only chance they have to get a win this year. If they had to play in normal conditions, they would get their butts kicked!

>>> Yes, I am a Dolfan

Can't dis a fellow fan of the greatest franchise in the history of sports (heading into the bowels of fenway puke), but "dolfan" sounds sorta weird...Fishfan or finfan...kinda like those better...

Like Richie said, the only decision about the Dolphins/Steelers game that has been made is to keep it on schedule for right now. If it is canceled, then the make up would probably be on Tuesday. And maybe Ricky could use some of that $8.6 million the arbitrator ruled he owes the Dolphins to save his precious South Beach condo. Yes, I too am a Dolfan.

The UKMET run at 1732 has shifted considerably. Thoughts on why?
