The Penguins will face Washington in the NHL's 2011 Winter Classic Jan. 1 at Heinz Field.I MUST get tickets!!! I was lucky enough to score three tickets to the first Winter Classic on 01-01-08, and I kid you not - it was the most fun I've ever had in my life other than my wedding.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is expected to make a formal announcement about that, along with several other high-profile league events, during a press conference in Chicago Friday.
Our seats weren't as bad as this picture makes it look. I took it with my old camera so it's not that great, but if you enlarge it, you'll see Siddo and Geno at the end of the line of Penguins walking out to the ice.
And this time, the Boys will be hosting the event against the Capitals. It will be nice seeing A-hOle™ & company lose outside for a change. ;)
I added this picture of my ticket as a late edit for a conversation in The Friends' Zone.
WOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!! GO PENS!!!!!!!
