Let me be honest here. I’m not a huge hockey fan.
I don’t know a single player on a third of the teams in the league, and I don’t know who any of those people are in the embedded photo above. That being said, I still wear Islanders gear, and am a casual fan that goes to about 2-3 games per month. Additionally, I have some Sabres gear, and have gone to a few games up in Buffalo, and I get really into the game when I go.
So, I was pretty intrigued when the NHL announced that the Winter Classic is coming to Citi Field this New Year’s Day, January 1st, 2018.
Unfortunately, the prices have been inflated ever since the tickets have come out. As of today’s date, the 29th of December the cheapest ticket on StubHub is $137, up in the Promenade Outfield, which will be freezing cold in that wind channel on a January night.
So, I’m probably not going to be going to the Winter Classic unless the ticket prices take a five, which I think will be fairly unlikely.
