So here’s Sports Illustrated’s weekly Sign of the Apocalypse:
A fan in Detroit — who confirmed he was serious — placed an ad on Craigslist offering to trade his house for World Series tickets.
Yeah, whoa, that’s totally nuts. But without dancing around this week, Deadspin is going to humbly submit the following as our Sign of the Apocalypse:
Hurricane Sandy, the largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded, blitzed the Eastern seaboard, making landfall near Atlantic City, N.J., and proceeding to smash the Jersey Coast, flood much of New York City, swamp the subway, close the financial markets, kill more than 100 Americans, destroy thousands of homes, leave millions without power and perhaps cost—might as well venture a guess, right?—somewhere in the neighborhood of $50 billion, equivalent to the annual GDP of Bulgaria. — Sam Eifling
