The NFL has Thanksgiving, the NBA has Christmas, and now the NHL is establishing New Year's Day as its day with the third annual Winter Classic game. This year Fenway Park played host to the spectacle, with the Boston Bruins battling the Philadelphia Flyers.
The only problem with this? It's still hockey, a sport not exactly as exciting as basketball, football or MMA. I was glad to see the game go into overtime and for the Bruins to eventually prevail, but I just wish the game was not so unappealing for the original 60 minute duration. That's a long time for hockey.moreless
