Old Time Hockey, Eh?

Great fun on a New Year's day: the Pittsburgh Penguins (in their original uniforms) and the Buffalo Sabers playing outdoor hockey with 73,000 people watching and big fluffy flakes falling all around, dewing up the player's faces in something called the Winter Classic in Buffalo, New York. They sang "Oh Canada", they've got an Irish tenor, the Penguins scored 21 seconds into the first period, and the players are laughing and exuberant in the snow.

The goalie is even wearing a stocking cap under all that gear!
This is how it should be played--what a crowd!
