Sports world seems to escape Hurricane Sandy's wrath

By The Associated Press
The fury of Hurricane Sandy barely laid a glove on sports around the country.
Sports emerged practically untouched on a quiet Monday as the superstorm flooded shore towns in the Northeast and shut down transit and school systems.
Perhaps the biggest dislocation came in the NFL. The league moved its trade deadline back two days to Thursday because of potential complications from the storm.
The Philadelphia Eagles closed their complex, and the New York Knicks canceled practice. The Washington Wizards adjusted travel plans for Tuesday night's opener in Cleveland.
In short, sports caught a break: The World Series ended a day earlier. The Monday night football game is in Arizona. Hockey is shut down. The NBA does not begin until Tuesday night. College basketball has not yet started.
