Game On! BC-BU at Fenway January 8, 2010


Game On!
Game On!

The rumors and speculation about a Hockey East version of the NHL's popular Winter Classic may now come to an end. According to the Herald, an official announcement for BC-BU at Fenway will be made next week (August 20).

Boston College and Boston University will play their own Winter Classic at Fenway Park on Friday, Jan. 8. The official announcement will be made next week.

Sources confirmed the game will take place at 8 p.m. It will be preceded by a women’s game between the University of New Hampshire and Northeastern University.

Jerry York is a) very excited b) wants it to be COLD! and c) expects a high turnout ...

"It’s going to be a late start (8 p.m.). How cold might that be?," York asked quizzically. "I think it’ll be a lot of fun. I think ticket prices will be pretty good. I envision 25,000 people, maybe. What a thing for Hockey East. Hey, the CCHA has done it. The WCHA has done it."

25,000 at Fenway for outdoor BC vs. BU Hockey East action a week after the NHL's Winter Classic's Bruins vs. Flyers game? Overly ambitious? I'm as excited as the next Eagles and Terriers hockey fan, but 25,000?
