HNiC to broadcast Ice Bowl

CBC’S Hockey Night in Canada will ring in the 2008 new year in ultimate style, with coverage of the AMP Energy NHL Winter Classic—the NHL’s first regular-season outdoor game in the United States—Tuesday, Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. ET in High-Definition.

Host Ron MacLean and the legendary Don Cherry will be front and centre at Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills, as Ryan Miller and the Sabres defend their home turf against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins in the highly-anticipated afternoon outdoor matchup.

Is there any chance US customs can keep those Leaf Loving Homers on the otherside of the border that day?
Why ruin what would be a great event with another Leafs Love in with Kingston's village idiot and his sidekick Punster McLean.

God, I hope that it is unseasonably warm in Buffalo that day (yeah, I know) and the game gets canceled.

When Michigan did it, it was cool. When Edmonton did it, it was a little less cool as a copycat, but still fun none the less. But the NHL is going to milk this idea until something goes drastically wrong with it, and the sooner the better.

I wish I wasn't going to be out of town on the 1st, I'd drive to Buffalo to join in the inevitable GO LEAFS GO chants.
