Well, it’s technically almost official. According to “various NHL sources,” The Buffalo News is reporting that the Ice Bowl between the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins will be played on January 1 outdoors at Ralph Wilson Stadium on NBC. Still no word on how tickets will be distributed or how much of my paycheck will be going towards them.
An official official statement is supposed to come down from Sabres brass on September 10 and if that doesn’t get you pumped for the new hockey season, NHL 08 will be released the next day. My toes are starting to get frostbite just thinking about it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the game will include an unlockable outdoor rink.
