Running the marathon was idiotic. Closing off streets and stretching our resources thin was flat out stupid.
Playing the Knicks game tonight was also easy. The game requires very little in the way of police presence and its no different than people showing up in manhattan for a broadway show.
The Giants situation is somewhere in between, but I just can't have that much of a problem with playing the game. Sure people are suffering (i was without power for a couple of days and have family sleeping over because they are still without power and are flooded) but the suffering will continue for a while and you can't stop every sporting event in the tri state area until everyone has power and all the displaced people are back in their homes.
No one is forcing anyone to go or watch the game. And the resources being used for the game are not that great.
