    The "What If...." Thread (Earthquake hit during Jets game at NMS)

    So a day full of excitement, mild panic, twitter folly and news crews scrambling to find people who saw something fall off their shelves has come to an end after the 5.8 magnitude east coast quake. I talked to a few friends who work in midtown and downtown about their reactions (i.e. did they evacuate, stay put in their buildings, avoid the subway, etc.) and it got me thinking -- what if the quake hit while NMS was full during a Jets game...

    Would the game be called off? Temporarily delayed?

    What if the ground shook while Sanchez was throwing a 60 yard TD to Plaxico? Would Belichick challenge because his CB got dizzy and fell?

    Would we get refunded for spilled beer at the concessions?

    Would people panic and run out? Would SAR be yelling, "Women and PSL holders first!"

    What if....

    These two would definitely happen, and I doubt the beer thing...

    Me too.

    No doubt SAR would be yelling at security guards to close off the stairs leading down from the upper deck as he evacuates the stadium, trapping people up there like the people in steerage on the Titanic.

    LOL. First laugh of the day. Well done, cross. Although, I'm usually more fatalistic than your characterization of me. I might turn to my wife and ask if she might finally relent to a threesome, maybe with the cute, buxom Latina a few rows down from us. :D

    Al Michaels and Tim McCarver (for some reason) would have to be doing the play by play. Best earthquake guys in the business.
