Went there last night. Atmosphere was awesome and it was a sellout. Where were all the Pittsburgh fans at their alumni game last year? Don't even try to tell me whose fans give better support. Philly has some of the best in the country. Period.

The Alumni game last year was a sellout also. In fact it sold out in 10 minutes. Not the PENS fanbase fault that the NHL limited the number of tickets.

Why does the Pens alumni game even come into this?

Jealousy is a stinky cologne, and right now...you reek.

Excuses? I think not. Pittsburgh fans were in an outrage last year when the NHL put a limit of 10,000 tickets on the game. Do a google search, then get to me about excuses.

Nope...Unlike you, I look up real facts!


NHL Winter Classic 2012: Rangers Vs. Flyers Draws Event's Lowest TV Rating Ever!!!


Alert, Alert. Most people had to work. The first time ever the Winter Classic wasn't played on a holiday. I bet the Penguins TV ratings are down overall this season because your Golden Boy still has a headache.
funny you bring up golden boy. pittsburghs hockey tv ratings were 1.5 before crosby arrived and have more than quadrupled since he was drafted. some markets just need a star to get excited about before they give a hoot.

You really believe that?

Here are some more facts for ya:
The holiday was on Sunday, which inturn made yesterday the "observed" holiday, which inturn meant that most people were off work yesterday. Keep digging, soon you will find yourself popping out in china!

The Gator Bowl was played in Florida. Winter Classic in Philly. 2 different cities very far apart. Genius

And just because 100 people watched the Gator Bowl this year and not just 20 doesn't mean the game was relevant. You're comparing apples to oranges. The Winter Classic is a completely different game.

Has nothing to do with your statement about most people having to work yesterday and effecting ratings. Which is why I made reference to The Gator Bowl being played at the same timeframe as the winter classic.

BTW, I did watch the Gator Bowl and not the winter classic, and I'm not in Florida!


Have a nice day!!!

I watched the winter classic. Personally, I like hockey better than I do football and I dont have any rooting interest in any bowl games.

Same here... I really enjoy the Winter Classic.

Besides, I do have a remote and I can use it well. I guess some guys don't.
