    Man, I enjoyed that game. The Winter Classic is becoming an annual favorite for me on New Years Day. Much like football on Thanksgiving and right up there with the Super Bowl and Stanley Cup playoffs. This year was epic IMO especially because it involved Canadian and USA city teams. The weather was perfect for Hockey and the crowd of 105,000+ made it a very special game.

    Anyone else watch the game and enjoy it as much as I did?

    I don't know, I've always loved Hockey, only second to football (North American Style). I've been trying to pick a team to root on for a few years now. I live in San Diego so naturally I'd lean towards the Ducks or Kings, but I kind of want to root for a team with more history like one of the teams that played today. Being a Charger fan I don't want to instantly go with a team with a epic winning record cuz that's just a band wagoner. I'm kind of leaning towards the leafs because of Hockey's roots in Canada.

    I watched the game and thought it was awesome. I wish the NHL would have just one a year instead of the five they're planning on. The leafs are a good team that was a few minutes away from advancing to the Stanley Cup last year They have a ton of history and a hardcore fan base and beautiful city. Whoever you end up rooting for (Leafs,Kings, Ducks) enjoy because it's the best sport ever.

    I watched it. Hockey is my favorite sport hands down. Yesterday's game was a good one. I'm excited for the Stadium Series.

    Always a good watch, should also check out HBO's 24/7 it follows both teams leading up to the winter classic and is a really well done series that shows behind the scenes of an NHL club.
