2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field

January 2, 2009

About half of my New Years day was spent at the “Frozen Confines” of Wrigley Field for the NHL Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks. The day started around 9:15 at Murphy’s Bleachers. Around 11, Nik and I made our way into the game. Despite the outcome, it was one of the coolest sporting events I have ever been to. Below are just a few pictures from the game and the surrounding Wrigley area. A bunch more can be found on my Flickr page.

Game on!

  1. This is just too cool for school.

    I really wish they put the pitching mound at center ice, and left it uncovered. It would have made for some interesting breakaways…

  2. Great pictures.

  3. Just another test.
