    In case you’re not up on your university marching bands, you should know that the Stanford University marching band (or “Stanford Band” for short) is known for their irreverent antics on the field.

    It was on this day in 1989 that Notre Dame defeated West Virginia in the Fiesta Bowl to earn the 1988 NCAA National Championship title.

    The 2014 Winter Classic Was Both Winter and Classic

    The NHL’s Winter Classic is not about showcasing hockey’s speed and skill. The goal is to remind everyone—in the dead of winter—that hockey is the winter sport par excellence.
