Breaking News: Captain Shorts Attempting To "High Five" Hurricane Sandy Back Out To Sea

Good luck and Godspeed, Captain!

The Apple Weather Center Says Hurricane Buddy Could Be The Real Problem

While millions along the east coast are prepared for Hurricane Sandy, the Apple Weather Center is issuing a new warning about Hurricane Buddy, a smaller but potentially more dangerous storm following closely behind.  Residents are urged to cover their property in plastic sheeting as Buddy is expected to "wiz" all over the place. You should also hide your slippers or expect to find them all chewed up on Tuesday morning.

It is currently unclear when exactly Hurricane Buddy will make landfall as local officials have launched a plan to distract the hurricane by running a giant can opener. More details as they become available.

Enter The Apple's Yankees Elimination Celebration Contest

The 2012 World Series is fast approaching.  This year's fall classic promises to be an exciting matchup if for no other reason than the fact that our neighbors in the Bronx won't be there. I have to admit I almost felt bad for the Yankees this year, what with the 3-ring A-Rod circus and all their hitters forgetting how to hit at the same time.

Yup, I ALMOST felt bad for them, but then I remembered they're the Yankees. So let the celebration begin! To kick things off I'm giving away two copies of THE WORLD SERIES: HISTORY OF THE FALL CLASSIC DELUXE DVD SET courtesy of A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions.

Meet Some Of Your Favorite Mets And Go To Bat For A Member Of The Mets Family

For those of you who don't already know, Mets senior director of media relations Shannon Forde, was diagnosed earlier this year with stage IV breast cancer.  Shannon is one of the hardest working people in the Mets organization and has been a big supporter of The Apple.  If you enjoy the silliness I produce on this site then maybe you'll consider helping lend some support to a friend in a time of need. 

Shannon's friends and family have joined up with  The Daniel P. Ryan Foundation and The Chic Charity Club to raise money and support Shannon with the medical expenses as well as her household expenses. They are hosting a fundraiser at the Westmount Country Club on November 1, 2012.

The fundraiser will consist of a dinner and auction, and a Mets meet & greet.
