This week marks the rollout of our latest local section, HuffPost Miami. Like generations of snowbirds before us, we are heading down to the Sunshine State -- and not just for a few months on South Beach. We're here to stay. Miami is, after all, one of the most dynamic and diverse cities in the world -- with nearly half of its residents born in another country. HuffPost Miami will, of course, bring you the stories and images that have long defined Miami in the popular imagination -- from airboats gliding through the Everglades to the clatter of dominoes on Calle Ocho to D-Wade and LeBron throwing it down on Biscayne. But we'll also dig deeper in an effort to tell the stories of all the people who make up this unique city -- one that is a combustible blend of the old and the new, the glittery and the grimy, the transient and the entrenched.
NEW YORK — The Big East now has a bowl in its backyard.
A Big East team will face a team from the Big 12 at Yankee Stadium in a new bowl game after the 2010 season.
The conferences and the New York Yankees announced on Wednesday that they have agreed to a four-year deal to play the first bowl in the Bronx since 1962.
The Big East, which has always considered New York its home turf, will send either its third or fourth selection to the yet-to-be-named bowl game. The Big 12 will send its seventh selection to play in the new $1.5 billion stadium.
If the Big 12 does not have enough bowl eligible teams, Notre Dame has agreed to take its place, providing it is available.
