    Weather on Sunday Could Be a Huge Factor????

    With Huricaine Sandy expected to hit Saturday or Sunday, all the Mid Atlantic states could get hammered this weekend. What is it looking like up Pittsbugh way?

    NFL games further east could have some issues.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Not sure about Pittsburgh, but they are predicting some serious nastiness over here. Apparently it's a relatively rare mix of a hurricane with a potential snow storm converging from inland.

    How are things looking for you, Ovi?

    Just clouds. Too far out to sea to the east of us. The beaches are real rough with lots of rip currents but we have been fortunate this season.

    So which team will bad weather effect more. I would think with our short passing game, and if we can run the ball like we did last week we should be ok. What do you think?

    Right now, the National Weather Service is forecasting anywhere from 0.25" to 0.50" of rain across western Pennsylvania between 8PM Saturday and 8PM Sunday. It'll have little to do with Hurricane Sandy, though, because the center of circulation is expected to be off the coast of the Carolinas at 2PM Sunday. The trigger for the precipitation in western Pennsylvania will be a frontal passage, although there is a chance that some moisture could be siphoned off Sandy to enhance rainfall totals. It's doubtful that Sunday will be a washout, though. If there's heavy rain in western Pennsylvania, then it's more likely to occur on Monday and Tuesday. Regardless, eastern Pennsylvania will get it a lot worse.

    I think rain would make it harder for Robert Griffin III because he wouldn't be able to use his legs as much.

    I think we should soak the field anyway. Turn it into a mudpit so RGIII starts sinking up to his ankles in it. That might slow him down. Then we turn the mini-bus loose and rumble to a victory.

    It's not going to be close enough by Sunday to be that much of a force. It's going by us here (NE FL on the coast) and the surf is testy and the wind is blowing down palm tree fronds, but that's it. But come Monday or Tues. folks in WPA might be in for some serious rain and your ground can't handle the water like we can in FL. I remember just a little remnant of a hurricane went through Pgh a few years ago and it flooded out the joint.
