Hurricane Sandy Aftermath: Proudly Wearing My Saints Cap

Canal Street Chronicles writer and Jersey Shore resident, Jack Sharkey, finds himself smack in the middle of Hurricane Sandy's path of destruction and closer to a fan base all too familiar with the long recovery process.


Just wanted to touch base with my neighbors in the Who Dat Nation from Hurricane Sandy's Ground Zero.

For the time-being, my football season is suspended. My beloved Jersey Shore has pretty much been destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. My house is standing and my family is okay, but the town I grew up in has been devastated.

Working to coordinate relief donations to the tens of thousands of people whose homes have been destroyed, and for reasons I don't feel a need to explain, my Saints cap is more meaningful to me now that it ever was before.

Hold us in your thoughts and prayers up here. We'll get back to business as soon as we can.
