The news cycle carries us from one issue to the next, and it’s easy to forget — or to simply to become numb to — the bad news from last month.
When it comes to the devastation created in New York and New Jersey by Hurricane Sandy, it’s important to remember the folks who are still dealing with the serious problems created by the storm, nearly two weeks after it struck.
Multiple NFL teams (the Giants, Jets, Dolphins, Vikings, and Colts), the league, the union, and Packers cornerback Charles Woodson have stepped up with major contributions. The rest of us can make a bunch of minor donations, via the Red Cross, the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
The other 27 teams could also peel off a little cash, too, if they choose to do it. Or if they can be publicly pressured into it.
Yes, Bills, Patriots, Steelers, Bengals, Browns, Ravens, Texans, Titans, Jaguars, Chiefs, Raiders, Broncos, Chargers, Eagles, Cowboys, Redskins, Lions, Bears, Packers, Panthers, Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, 49ers, Rams, Cardinals, and Seahawks. We’re all looking at you.
