So we're watching... The NHL Winter Classic on NBC -- Toronto Maple Leafs versus Detroit Redwings -- at the Big House on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
It's outdoors. It's packed. It's like the largest crowd to see a hockey game, as Michigan Stadium seats over 100,000. It's 12°F, wind chill is 0°F, chance of snow 100%. Perfect. Watching the crews pushing off the dry fluffy snow, hilarious.
And now I have a book to read.
Enjoy your New Year's.
