[QUOTE=Come Back to NY;3429161]they should really try and have old time match-ups in these games...Rangers/Bruins, Red Wings/Canadians, Hawks/Maple Leafs....[/QUOTE]
NBC refuses to let the NHL let a Canadian team play in the Winter Classic because they don't air NBC on basic cable in Canada. A Winter Classic in Yankee Stadium would most likely bring Rangers vs. Capitals because they want Ovechkin in the spotlight. A mistake in my opinion because rivalry games are more exciting, but NBC only cares about ratings.

[QUOTE=BURGERMIKE;3430170]What does 32 do to be booted from said venue?[/QUOTE]
Before I was married, my wife worked in Boston, so I was up there pretty regularly. (And I love NE, Boston....just not the teams:D) We went to a game, the dudes behind us (about 8 or so drunken eejits) started saying sh*t to my lovely, so I figured the only way to avoid a beat down by them all when I objected, was to act like a nut which I did. A little yelling, screaming, an offer to fight fight them all, the usual.
Security showed up, saw two NY'ers, and 8 Masswholes and made the obvious decision.
I couldnt blame them.:D
I've seen the same at Yankee stadium, so its not unique to Fenway.
