It's New Year's Eve and more than a million people are expected to cram into Times Square to ring in 2013. Mayor Bloomberg officially hit the button for the Times Square ball to drop—he'll also have 18 Rockettes by his side—at midnight, but even now, at nearly 2:30 p.m., it is packed.

Former New York Ranger Nick Kypreos Tweeted this photo, "Stupidest move in negotiation history! Scheduling meeting in NYC on New Years eve. Scene outside #NHL office 6th ave" Well, stupid and this NHL lockout go hand-in-hand.
