The city of Pittsburgh will be holding the winter classic this coming hockey season. While other cities were thinking about it, Pittsburgh jumped at the opportunity right at the beginning. In fact they plan to make it a three day event with all sorts of activities going on through out the city. This is one of the best idea`s that the NHL has come up with in a while.
Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals will be going against Sidney Crosby and the Penguins on New Years Day 2011 in Heinz field. Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers of the NFL. What more of a better match up can you ask for between these two players and teams. Both are top teams in the eastern conference.
I`m sure this will be one of the hottest tickets going around that time of the year. After all, it could be a long time before this type of an event comes back to the Keystone state. If anyone is a big time hockey fan or Penguin fan i`d suggest you make every effort to take your family. What would be better than to take your son to watch a hockey game outdoors with 65,000 to 70,000 Penguin fans in a snow storm! Well, maybe a snow storm. But it does sound like a great time!
