New York Marathon cancelled

| No Comments

Sunday's New York Marathon was cancelled Friday mayor Michael Bloomberg's office, the Huffington Post reported.
"The Marathon has been an integral part of New York City's life for 40 years and is an event tens of thousands of New Yorkers participate in and millions more watch," Bloomberg and New York Road Runners president Mary Wittenberg said in a joint statement, reported ESPN. "While holding the race would not require diverting resources from the recovery effort, it is clear that it has become the source of controversy and division."
Bloomberg had recently planned to proceed with the marathon in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and the decision to cancel the marathon came after heavy scrutiny.

Giants defeat Cowboys to expand NFC East lead

| No Comments

The New York Giants held on to beat the Dallas Cowboys 29-24 Sunday in Arlington.
Lawrence Tynes starred for New York, converting on all five of his field goal attempts, including two in the fourth quarter, the Associated Press said.
While Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo contributed a career-high 437 passing yards, he also threw four interceptions, accounting for two-thirds of Dallas' turnovers, The Sports Network said.
Dallas scored what appeared to be the game-winning touchdown with just 10 seconds remaining when receiver Dez Bryant caught a pass in the end zone, but the call was overturned when replay revealed Bryant's hand came down out of bounds, ESPN said.
The Giants now hold a two-and-a-half game lead in the NFC East at the halfway point of their season.

Multiple cities along the east coast have begun evacuations in preparations for Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to hit the U.S. this week.
New York mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered evacuations of areas throughout the city, affecting an estimated 375,000 people, Reuters reported.
"If you don't evacuate, you are not only endangering your life, you are also endangering the lives of the first responders who are going in to rescue you," Bloomberg said. "This is a serious and dangerous storm."
"Don't be stupid. Get out," said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The National Hurricane Center said the states of New York and New Jersey can expect water levels to rise from six to 11 feet, the Tribune reported.
