Well folks, today is your big day. As many of you return to work, the NHL hosts the Winter Classic. Maybe you can watch it on DVR when you get home.
For those who are jealous of us who get to watch, know that this particular author will not be watching. We have gone through the reasons, so we won't do so here again. However, just know that while you long to watch the game, we few, we bitter who choose not to watch it stand at your side through your misery. For those of you who will be watching... enjoy the false rivalry and the ridiculous date and start time. Enjoy the corporate pageantry in all it's glory.
I'll watch reruns of something on the History Channel.
