It’s Officially Time to Start Freaking Out Over Hurricane Sandy. Unless It’s Not.

Oh, sure, we told you already that Hurricane Sandy appears to be weakening as it bears down on Philadelphia, but why would you listen to us when you can go into a full-blown WEATHER PANIC instead! Yes, the weather appears mild enough that the Eagles are still planning to play their Sunday game—mostly because they don’t want to have to repeat the ignominy of Ed Rendell calling everybody a “wuss” for calling it off—but that also means that Fumble-Prone Mike Vike (TM) will have to hold onto the ball in a driving rain. Oh, yeah, also the storm could affect the roads and even cause a “power outage nightmare“: That’s bad too. Thank God we have John Travolta at his most beautiful to croon us through these tough times.
