Boston.com is reporting that the Flyers could play a hockey game at Fenway Park, "Yes, there will be a sheet of ice in Fenway Park for a Jan. 1 Winter
Classic. It's a done deal, Bruins vs. either the Capitals or Flyers.
The league will make it official at the start of July, with a splashy
media event in the old ballpark."
Will Alexander the Great's marketing power outshine our beloved Flyers and get the match up? Only time will tell. While their opponent is uncertain, one thing is sure: those Beanheads will be cold as hell outside at Fenway in January.
With a trip planned up to Boston this weekend to see the rockband Phish -- from Vermont! -- at Fenway on Sunday, two non-baseball events at the historic ball park could be in my future over the next few months.
