  13. How's the weather?

    Feel so fortunate not to be in these frigid conditions sweeping through so many places; feel for you if you are having to deal with it. 3rd year serious drought.... day after day mid to upper 30's in the evening mid 60's in the afternoon.

    Oh geez....so sorry to heat this
  15. 2013 -14 NHL and assorted hockey stuff

    ....or 1 singular EVENT per year That said those 'north of the boarder' want an outdoor game badly, so 1 in USA & 1 in Canada each year or alternating I think is more reasonable. I actually like that the conditions aren't predictable like the indoor rinks....puts hockey for those few games in the same realm of football or baseball where wind/weather may come into play. In the winter classic they changed ends at the 10 minute mark in each period...pretty cool wrinkle I thought.
  16. NFL 2013

    Can't have it both [3] ways ....dangerous Chargers/Chiefs practice squad/Chiefs 1st stringers just not a very good team. Niners/Carolina two terrific defenses, but we'll not see a baseball score like we did last time. 9ers had no wide receiver threat and other key injuries last time out.

  18. 2013 -14 NHL and assorted hockey stuff

    The players and coaches unanimously love it, as they (almost) all started out playing outdoors. With the weather being the way it was both teams kept things pretty simple which to me was really enjoyable to watch. In an effort for the NHL to 'kill the goose that laid the golden egg' they're doing this Stadium Series, at the end of the month and then again in March. Kings/Ducks at Dodger Stadium Rangers/Islanders, then 2 days later Rangers/Devils; both at Yankee Stadium March 1 & 2 Pens/Hawks at Soldier Field Canucks/Sens at BC Place
  19. 2013 -14 NHL and assorted hockey stuff

    The Winter Classic was a fantastic show yesterday!! Did anyone catch it? I'm glad Toronto got the 2 points as goaltender Bernier was head & shoulders the best player on the ice IMO. Funniest part was to me, hours afterwards NHL network had a post game show OUTDOORS near the rink....to see the co-hosts in parkas chatting it up in the frigid weather was pretty silly. During one segment, they had 2 participants from the game who were named to the USA Olympic team who were typically hockey player polite, but were very happy to be done. I get it to have reporters nearby for immediate reaction after the game as NBC did, then they had an indoor place and a podium indoors for coaches and player interviews. Question to NHL....stadium holds 100,000+ seats....might there be an indoor area to set up your post game panel?
