• Winter Classic. The NHL broke out the successful outdoor game on New Year's Day in 2008. Now, the whole thing has been made silly with repeated outdoor games.

• NBA on Christmas Day. The NBA started with home games for the Knicks and Lakers in 1983. Now, it bores the Hades out of people with non-stop (five) games.

• NHL 3-on-3. "Hey, our fans seem to like 3-on-3 overtime; let's play 60 minutes as our All-Star event.''

— More silliness from the Brain of Bettman.
