NEARLY REASON ENOUGH TO VIOLATE THE TIMEZONE RULE:

'The Big Chill' Game Draws Record Crowd to See Michigan Beat Michigan State (Bruce Ciskie, 12/11/10, FanHouse)

Conditions were almost perfect Saturday in Ann Arbor, Mich., as history was made at Michigan Stadium.

Over 113,000 fans were on hand to see "The Big Chill in The Big House," an outdoor hockey game between rivals Michigan and Michigan State. The fans -- nearly all of them rooting for the home-standing Wolverines -- were treated to a show, as Michigan waxed its neighbors, 5-0.

113,411 was the exact attendance, smashing the record for attendance at a hockey game anywhere in the world. It also was the largest crowd for any NCAA event in any sport.
