Big News!

I'm going to the Ice bowl!

After all of the crap, after all of the problems, I'm going to the goddamn ice bowl!

For those of you who have been living in a cave, and by living in a cave I mean, regularly getting your sports coverage from say, ESPN, you might have no idea that on New Years Day at 1:00 PM, the Pittsburgh Penguins will be facing off against the Buffalo Sabres in first outdoor regular season game in NHL history. It will be happening in the stadium where the Buffalo Bills play, and you can see some nifty pics of them building the rink here.

For my part, I can't believe I'm this excited to go to Buffalo in January. I mean, Jesus.

It's been a tough ticket to get, and if you have a couple hundred bucks you can still get in, but I managed to snag one at face value through the time honored technique of "knowin' a guy who knows a guy." In this case, the guy is my buddy Jack, Buffalo fan and occasional contributor to AHF. Anyway, Jack will be covering the event for Deadspin, and I'll be covering the event right here.Oh, and by "covering" I actually mean "drunkenly trying to type up a recap while wearing woolen mittens saturated with frozen buffalo wing sauce."

It should be a good time.

Should be a sweet one.

But wasn't the Heritage Classic (the Montreal/Edmonton game a few years back) the first outdoor game?
