Hurricane Sandy has taken the life of over 100 people on the Eastern seaboard and affected millions onmillions of others. While athletes may have more money than the average civilian, they’ve been affected by this catastrophejust as much as anyone else.
Among them is Brooklyn Nets power forward Andray Blatche. Blatche was, assumingly, driving home from the Brooklyn Nets’ first regular season home game in the Nets’ new arena, the Barclays Center, when he ran out of gas.
Here’s his tweet:
I tried I’m stuck on the highway ran out of gas jus my luck

It’s worth note here that some people in the Brooklyn area have re-selling gas for around $20 gallon. No resources are cheap right now, especially gas.
Blatche struggled to find a gas station, and then over an hour later posted: “I tried I’m stuck on the highway ran out of gas jus my luck.” Blatche at this point got lots of positive, and helping responses from his Brooklyn-based fans.
Fortunately, he later posted that he was with his little brother, and that he had filled up at the high price for $220.
