Twitter report: Players prepare for hurricane

Saturday August 27th, 2011

Mardy Fish tweeted a photo of his supplies in preparation for Irene. "Bring it Irene!"

I have never been in a hurricane. From what I can tell from watching television this week, hurricanes are an excuse for New Yorkers to show off their penchant for cynicism, and local broadcasters to show off their penchant for hyperbole. The truth of what will happen probably lies somewhere in between, but in the meantime I am buying snacks.

Because that's what Mardy Fish told me to do. But he's not the only one bracing for Irene. Here's how a few other players are spending their minutes before looming Irene.
