TweetI like NY Giants punter Steve Weatherford but just found some of his tweets odd and a bit insensitive during Hurricane Sandy.
While most in New York were using their 140 characters on Twitter to wish everyone well or to provide updates on news Weatherford was happy go lucky! His tweets included the Goofy hat pic, his blue suede shoes, his suit and several others.
The disparity of his tweets in comparison to the ones above and below him caught my attention. Made me realize how disconnected some of us can be at times. The tweets came around 10:45pm to right after 11pm.
Steve Weatherford Tweets Durring Hurricane Sandy
In all fairness the photo of him coaching pee wee soccer was nice but the tweet directly above him expressed what was going on in New York City for regular folks.
Transformer just exploded! Weatherford "hey look at my blue suede shoes"!
Three fun pics in a row here including the Goofy photo used for the post. It would be too long to include the above and...

AROUND THE WEB
Eli Manning Kate Mara, the daughter of Giants owner John Mara tweeted a photo of quarterback Eli Manning taking a picture of the flooded lobby in his Hoboken New Jersey apartment building. I’m sure Eli isn’t the only Giants’ player that’s flooded in. At least we know he’s OK, and should be able to play this week. “Looks like our QB is good in #Hoboken.twitpic.com/b8u3yd”...
The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys played one for the ages down in Arlington today. After storming to a 23-0 lead midway through the second quarter off four Dallas turnovers, the Giants were unable to generate any offense as the Cowboys fought back to take a 24-23 lead into the fourth quarter. Although the Giants looked lifeless on both sides of the ball at times today, the defense...

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told Mike Francecsa on 660 WFAN in New York that everything is “moving in the right direction” towards him getting a new contract.
“From what I hear, they’ve just agreed on the structure right now,” Cruz said. “And that’s all I’m at liberty to say.”
Cruz continues to hope something will be finalized soon.
SALSA IN THE CITY

Cruz, a restricted free agent after this season, is seeking a long-term contract. His current salary is $540,000. "From what I hear, they've just agreed on the structure right now," Cruz said on WFAN-AM in New York. "...
Osi Umenyiora and the New York Giants were feeling awful, believing they had just suffered a monumental collapse.
Upon further review, a replay overturned a Dallas Cowboys touchdown with 10 seconds left and the Giants held on for a 29-24 victory Sunday after blowing a 23-point lead, taking a firm hold on the NFC East lead.
''After going up 23-0 and having them come back...
As the old saying goes, “As Lawerence Tynes goes so do the New York Giants”…and this week was no different. The Giants were able to hold off a fierce attack as Tony Romo was throwing balls right at defenders with no mercy.
Tynes has had a fabulous season and the Giants are off to a good start. He is 24-26 on the season from field goal range with his only two misses being...

Blackburn was hurt in the third quarter after assisting in a tackle of Dallas running back Felix Jones. He went to the sidelines, where senior vice president of medical...
Video: Jerry Jones gets fired up
Jerry Jones is a helluva lot better salesman than he is a GM, that’s for sure.
Back when the Dallas Cowboys opened training camp in Oxnard, Calif., in July, Jones boasted to the fans “I want you to come to [Cowboys Stadium] and watch us beat the New York Giants’ ass, OK?”
The Cowboys stunned NFL fans by beating the Giants on the road to...
In the days leading up to the week 8 contests I posted an article deriding a fantasy analyst who suggested that a fantasy GM simply could not start Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks at the same time because they both played for the Giants. As it turns out, both players turned in duds but the moral is that the fact that one fantasy owner starts them both, shouldn't matter.
