HBO's 24/7 Returning For 2012 Winter Classic

NHL chief operation officer John Collins confirmed to The Globe and Mail that HBO’s 24/7 series would follow the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers prior to their Jan. 2 matchup in the Winter Classic.

24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic won a Sports Emmy Award for “Outstanding Edited Sports Special” and was also nominated in the “Outstanding Post Produced Audio/Sound” and “The Dick Schaap Writing Award” categories.

Something tells me that Rangers coach John Tortorella won’t be as charismatic as Pittsburgh Penguins coach “Disco” Dan Bylsma.

Pittsburgh Holding Rally to Honor Hines Ward's Victory on Dancing With the Stars

It’s the summer, when the weather is miserable and there’s few things to keep you entertained on a Thursday afternoon. If you live in Pittsburgh, the city elders have your malaise in mind, scheduling a noon rally in front of the City-County Building on Grant Street to honor Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward for his third Super Bowl victory for having an illegal blocking rule named in his honor for winning Dancing With the Stars, the reality TV show that’s a huge hit with women and women.

Mr. Ward and dance partner Kym Johnson will be present.

Fans are encouraged to wear black and gold and bring Terrible Towels to the rally.

“City residents and the Steelers Nation have contacted my office asking for the city to properly thank our hometown hero for once-again shining the spotlight on Pittsburgh,” Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said.

In addition, couples are invited to highlight their dancing skills in two-minute YouTube videos for a chance to appear on stage with Mr. Ward and Ms. Johnson. No more than two dancers can appear in the video.

A rally for a football player who won a reality dance competition? Sorry, I have a flash mob event I have to attend.

Mike Pereira To Join Fox Crew In Dallas For Super Bowl

There won’t be a need to toss to Mike Pereira at the Fox Los Angeles studios during the Super Bowl.

The former head of officials for the NFL will be in the booth during the network’s Super Bowl coverage.

He’s a remarkable 34-for-34 in predicting on-air what referees will do on a specific call.

“I hold my breath every time,” Pereira said. “To be honest, I watch other networks’ games, and there have been a couple I got wrong. I’ve been lucky.”
