Quick Hits!

Three quick things.

The Pinstripe Bowl was played at Yankee Stadium and this picture sums it up very nicely.

The Colts were ousted from the NFL Playoffs by the Jets this past Saturday. The remnants of the old AFC logo were visible under the paint for the new AFC logo. In fairness to the Lucas Oil Stadium crew, they use FieldTurf where the fibers themselves are colored, not painted. It's tough to cover something up. I'm sure they'll have the new logo in by next season.

And lastly...

The NHL Winter Classic was in Pittsburgh on New Years Night. The NHL is picking up the tab for the new field currently being installed. Money quote:

The NHL is paying to have the turf at Heinz Field replaced in time for the division playoff Jan. 15. It seems the damage done by constructing a hockey rink for the Winter Classic made the field unplayable.

Until next time.
