The Winter Classic is the Best Thing to Happen to Hockey… Ever

The Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers line up for the National Anthem as US Air Force fighter jets fly over during the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park on January 2, 2012 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Hockey fans will say my headline is an ignorant statement. Well, most lobsters know that I’m not much of a hockey fan. I respect the game and all… just don’t really have ‘a team’ and never really watch games on a regular basis. Yet, the one game I want to watch every year is the Winter Classic. I just think it’s so freaking cool. It gets sports fans that aren’t hockey fans to watch hockey. Brilliant. How rad is that photo up top? Click to enlarge. Find a bunch more here. The Rangers beat the Flyers 3-2. Here are two more of my favorites.
