Any of you planning to watch the Penguins/Sabres NHL Winter Classic game today? Here’s ESPN’s Scott Burnside on some of the possible pitfalls of an outdoor hockey game in the snow belt of New York on New Year’s Day. Here’s the weather forecast:
Periods of snow, mainly before 10am. High near 36. Southeast wind 8 to 16 mph becoming west. Winds could gust as high as 33 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.
Sounds idyllic, except for the wind. Brrrr!
