News is breaking from the Herald this morning that the Boston Bruins will host the 2010 Winter Classic at Fenway park on January 1, 2010. The opponent has yet to be named, but all we can do is hope/assume they're smart enough to schedule the Canadians. Let's face it, Boston/New York is a great rivalry in most professional sports, but hockey just isn't one of them, get the Canadians in here so we can throw stuff at them from the right field grandstand.
According to the report, the NHL looked at both Gillette and Fenway to host the game, but scheduling conflicts with the Patriots gave Fenway the upper hand. The league was also considering the cities of New York and Philadelphia for the game, but correctly decided on Boston and Fenway Park for this event. The game has yet to be officially announced, but you can bet that those crazy bruins fans are already waiting outside Ticketmaster for seats.
Bruins fans (the real ones)...are just a different breed of people, I respect them, but damn am I scared of them at the same time.
