College football is coming to the House That George Built. The new Yankee Stadium will be hosting the Pinstripe Bowl this December, in arguably the worst name for a bowl game since the Poulan Weedeater Independence Bowl.
The game will feature a matchup between the Big East team with the third-best conference record and the Big 12 team with the sixth-best record after removing both conferences’ BCS Bowl participants.
The inaugural game will be the first college football game held in the Bronx since Dec. 15, 1962. –MLB.com
I’m somewhat surprised to see more postseason football–first the Super Bowl and now this–making its way up to the Tristate area, especially considering the obvious weather issues. But money talks, and I think I hear it saying, “We want to watch football,” and most people just do whatever the money tells them. I really thought this would work itself into a joke, but it ain’t happening. Right now I hear the money telling me to wrap it up. Good idea, actually.
