Tomorrow afternoon will be the one day of the year I will be watching hockey as the Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings play outside at Wrigley Field. The Bridgestone Winter Classic is the talk of the town and hockey outdoors has actually managed to get some big-time buzz. This morning, I spoke with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman about the game.
Every once in a while, I like to pose a question to my readers. Today, we're doing a little choose-your-own-adventure with the New York Jets, who fired their head coach Eric Mangini this morning, after the team failed to make the playoffs following yesterday's loss.
