Game of the day

Game of the day

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the NHL is moving closer to having stars Alex Ovechkin of the Capitals and Sidney Crosby of the Penguins meet in next season's Winter Classic outdoor game. The game would be played Jan. 1 at Pittsburgh's Heinz Field, home of the Steelers. If this happens, the Steelers' schedule might have to change. They play at home Dec. 23, and it takes two weeks to set up the rink.

Anniversary of the day

Twenty-six years ago today might have been the saddest day in the history of Baltimore sports. In the wee hours of March 29, 1984, moving vans were loaded with the football gear of the Colts and driven off to a new home in Indianapolis. To this day, former owner Robert Irsay, who died in 1997, is vilified in Baltimore for moving the franchise that called Baltimore home for nearly 30 years.

Change of the day

Starting today, Bright House Sports Network alters its schedule. The Lineup will air at 6 p.m. (and repeat at 6:30). The Sports Connection will air at 11 p.m., repeat with updates at 11:30 and repeat the next day with more updates at noon and 12:30 p.m. The fishing shows move to a three-hour Sunday block, from 7 to 10 p.m., called Sunday Night Fish Fry.
