NHL WINTER CLASSIC 2011 - PENS v. CAPS - HEINZ FIELD, PITTSBURGH, PA
WINTER CLASSIC 2011 DISCUSSION
So I've got tickets...it will definitely be the best Winter Classic yet due to the rivalry between the clubs and the obvious fact that Pittsburgh sports fans are the best anywhere (you won't see us at PNC Park though we're done with those Pirates).
Heinz Field is perfect since the one end of the stadium opens up to the Pittsburgh skyline and the confluence of the rivers, it will almost feel like they're playing out on the rivers like the old days.
The only thing that is necessary is snow, it's no fun playing outside if the ice is gonna play the same as it does inside (that's why the first PIT@BUF Classic was so cool because it was snowing hard and they kept having to shovel the ice off).
