Default Winter Classic...Detroit/Chicago at Wrigley

Anyone else watching the game? I don't get the opportunity to watch hockey on TV here in Carolina so I am pretty excited that this is nationally televised.

Boston needs to look into hosting this at Fenway...would be a neat game to attend. I know they were looking at BU/BC a few years back. Did that every happen?

I'm watching it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this Conklin's 3rd outdoor game?

Also really like Chicago's uni's. They look sharp.

I know he played for Pittsburgh last year in the Classic...not sure about the third.

This is a good game so far...two teams fighting for points....both teams chippy.

My wife and I just got back from Wrigley. What a blast! We didn't have tickets... just walked around and soaked in the atmosphere.

There were more people in the Wrigleyville bars than there were during the playoffs, which is saying a lot.

I had trouble with Reebok's site...I went though nhl.com and had no issues.

Yea, im sure you can enter all day, but the rules say that only entries received before the end of the second period will count, they want to get you information so they can spam you...HAHA

Very possible, but given everyone at Wrigley has a chance to enter, and the contest is US wide chances are slim. Plus side, looks like winner will be announced tomorrow...just hope as you stated you read the rules...gotta be 18 to win

Pavel Datsyuk is the man, what a game by the Wings and a great game to watch. Can't wait till the winter classic comes to Yankees stadium.

That was a fun game to watch...I would like to go to one of these some year b/c the atmosphere would be great. Not sure it would be as good to watch the game though. May be a game to be around the stadium before the game and then find a bar to watch it in.

This was a great event for the NHL to gain some national exposure, plus it helpd me from having to watch Michigan State in their bowl game.
