1:00 p.m., Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA
So this game is going to be played outside? Well I never...
Hopefully this thing gets off on the right foot. Supposed to be 50 or so and have some rain and with a 1 p.m. start it will be interesting to see how close they get to that start time.
As big of a platform as this game in lets keep in mind that this is only one game. One game of 82. Keep it in perspective.
Please go over to Sean's Ramblings where he brought together a great number of bloggers, including me, to take a look at the Winter Classic.
