Denzel Washington and Hurricane Sandy


This is probably Denzel Washington.


There were no paparazzi or fans to scream for him, because he was arriving during a hurricane.  So I was missing some of my usual cues, and the hat didn't help.


But the shoes look similar to the ones he wears in this paparazzi shot from the last time he was on the show.



Denzel Washington was the lead guest for Monday's Hurricane Sandy show.  It was a very interesting show because there was no audience.  Here's a sample.

As entertaining as Denzel was, the hurricane was the star of the show today.

As Dave and Biff Henderson discussed during the show, the storm damaged this crane at a skyscraper under construction on 57th Street.  A large section was dangling, causing the evacuation of surrounding buildings and the blocking-off of streets.


If the worst happens to the gum, this is the last photo of it.  October 29, 2012, 4:48 p.m.


4:50 p.m.: audio guy Al Norwood waving from the Gum Window.  Get home safe, Al!
God bless us every one!

    Good detective work! (I've already worn out the word "gumshoe" up here.)
    God bless us every one!

  2. I salute you and the entire staff's bravery in the face of overwhelming adversity. But the gum! What of the gum?!?!?!?

    1. It can now be revealed: the gum survived. I checked on my way in this morning, as sad as that is to admit.

    2. Phew! As Denzel Washington said in the movie "Deep Impact": "Live will go on". Oh wait, I think that was Morgan Freeman.

    3. I also think it was "life", not "live".

      Seriously, on behalf of the rest of the country, we're all pulling for you guys. And I'm honored to speak for the rest of the country - if not seriously disqualified.

    4. You can take the hurricane out of the gum, but you can't...blah...blah...blah...

  3. I never knew Denzel was left handed till just now. It's evident the way he carried his back pack.

    1. Ah, nice detective work! And another clue that it's him. There's not much online about whether Denzel is left-handed or right-handed, but I did see one claim that he's left-handed.
