The Sabres on TV, a plate of wings, a couple of Labatt Blues, and spending time with good friends. I really can’t imagine a better way to ring in 2008.
The game could not have been better if it were scripted. How cool was it to see so much snow falling during a hockey game? Both teams wearing their old school uniforms. Overtime. A shootout. Sydney Crosby’s game winner. Oh, and not to mention over 71,000 fans in attendance. What an awesome day for hockey!
I seriously hope that the NHL considers doing the Winter Classic every New Years Day. There are enough cold weather cities in the NHL to be able to take this thing around the league. It could be the shot in the arm hockey needs to bring more eyes back to the sport.
Did anyone tune in? Even for a minute? What did you think?
