Pop quiz, hot shot! What’s the best thing about Stamford, Connecticut’s “Heights and Lights” Christmas event this year?
(a) that it will feature Yankees GM Brian Cashman rappelling down the side of a building as a “guest elf?” or
(b) that it takes place on the building directly outside of NBC Sports.com’s headquarters, and that some of my remote co-workers will get to watch it while sitting at their desks?
People back at HQ: this is an official request for pics as it’s happening.
In other news, security will be on high alert for Casey Close, who will not be allowed the rapelling area during Cashman’s rappel.
