Good morning and Happy 2008 from the Ice Bowl!
The cover of the game program for the NHL Winter Classic has some Penguin and Sabre figurines playing hockey in a snow globe and it's a perfect picture because that's what we have this morning in Ralph Wilson Stadium.
The snow is gently falling with a light breeze and it's the kind of postcard scene that NBC and CBC were probably dreaming of. The zamboni is on the ice and there will be no problems if the weather stays like this. The tailgate parties are in full swing. You're expecting the Bills to come bursting out of the tunnel.
If you're coming down, take a look atop the upper decks. The NFL flags have been replaced by large flags for each NHL team. The Western Conference clubs are on the press box side while the Eastern Conference are on the visitors' side of the field. Nice touch.
