Red Bulls Support Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Efforts

A number of Red Bulls were among the millions of people throughout the tri-state area affected by Hurricane Sandy. A few players recounted their personal experiences with the storm as the states continue to recover from the damage sustained in the aftermath. Nearly every player on the team experienced a power outage, but like many people living in the areas, they did what they could to make the most of it. Defender Heath Pearce spent time with Kenny Cooper and his family playing Monopoly, but according to Cooper, was pretty disappointed in the outcome. “We did play some Monopoly,” Cooper said from the training facilities at Montclair State University. “My little brother won the game and I don’t think Heath was too happy about it.” Midfielder Dax McCarty tweeted out pictures of his “survival kit” Thursday evening before experiencing the storm’s surge a few days later. “The water came pretty close to my apartment. It was probably about 30 feet from me,” McCarty said. “But I kept the faith, stayed positive and you just kind of will the water down with your thoughts. It didn’t get very close, but it was a little nerve racking there for a time. Connor Lade, along with his roommates Jeremy Vuolo and Corey Hertzog, played some card games and just made the most of it while waiting for the storm to end. There's still plenty of work to do as the area continues to heal and recover from the damage done. In that respect, the Red Bulls and Major League Soccer announced Wednesday Red Cross Hurricane Sandy disaster relief efforts.
