SANDY REARED her ugly dread in the sports world. Some examples:
* The St. Cloud State women's hockey team was still stranded in Providence, R.I. on Tuesday, thanks to Hurricane Sandy. The Huskies were supposed to catch a flight out of Boston on Monday after playing a weekend series against Providence College. And now they're hoping to catch a flight by Thursday so they can back to Minnesota for their home opener on Friday against Ohio State.
* With the storm bearing down and his flight canceled, Cincinnati Bengals long snapper Clark Harris had to improvise. He got his wife and their 4-month-old child in a car and headed west, driving 12 1/2 hours through wind and heavy rain to get back to Cincinnati. He pulled into town in the early morning hours Monday, wondering if his beachfront house back in New Jersey was still standing.
