Sorry, New Jersey. Sporting events should be treated as non-essential products.
Why would the NHL and the NBA force the Flyers-Devils and Bucks-Nyets contests to be played? If I was Governor Christie, he of the Good Oldboysandgirls Party, the "State of Emergency" order would also include all events that not needed like sporting events. Why did over 1,000 force themselves to go to the soon-to-be-dismantled Brendan Byrne Arena/Continental Airlines Arena/IZOD Center to watch the most wretched sports franchise since the 1972-73 Seventy Sicksters. This game and the Devils-Flyers Game at the Prudential Center in Newark should have been cancelled for the safety of everybody - players, officials, fans - because of this snowstorm.
