Anyone watching the Winter Classic?
I was there!

Missed the first period because of a combination of a border crossing problem/delay and some absolutely horrible driving weather on I-94. Tons of accidents, and we were fortunate not to be hit by an SUV that spun out, and which did hit another poor guy who had already been in an accident and was waiting in his van on the shoulder for the police.

Stupidly cold. Constant snowfall. And really, really awesome.

I'll post some pics tomorrow, but right now, I need to go to bed, because we just got home.
Please do post some pics! That looked like an experience of a lifetime. I'm glad you made it there (and home) safe and sound.

BTW, I love that there were so many passionate fans at the game and (thus far anyway) no reports of any stupid confrontations. Maybe it was just too damned cold there, but I like to think that we're all hockey fans first, and that the game transcended rivalry and became something truly universal.

But you were there. What was the atmosphere like between the fans - especially fans of rival teams?
