Just stumbled on these great images from yesterday's snowy Winter Classic at the Big House on CBSSports and thought people might like to see them. How great is this?
If you attended, tell us what it was like!
UPDATE: Apparently there will be NO public sale of tickets for this game.
No tickets to the public expected...corporate sponsors get first dibs then going to season ticket holders of the Red Wings, GR Griffins, Plymouth Whalers (plus Leafs, Marlies, and Sting) second as a way to boost their season ticket sales. Each of those can purchase up to 4 tickets.
Plus, you'll have to buy a GLI ticket for every Classic ticket.
Alumni game information not published yet.
"According to an email Josh Howard received from the Grand Rapids Griffins, there will be no public sale of Winter Classic tickets:
As we enter our beautiful summer months, we are looking forward to our 17th Season this year. We have some exciting events coming up this year including the Winter Classic Game between the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. There will be no public sale for this event and the Griffins are one of the only places you can purchase tickets to this historic event. Tickets will be made available to many of our ticket plan holders"
$89 for the cheapest ticket. Wow, there goes my hopes of getting a cheap seat.
Still no announcemnent on when they will actually go on sale. Details from MLive are below.
A graphic posted on DetroitRedWings.com indicates that ticket prices for the 2013 NHL Winter Classic between the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs Jan. 1 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor will be priced between $89 and $279.
EDIT: Prices for GLI/Comerica Events are much cheaper.
NHL confirms 2013 Winter Classic will be at the Big House between the Red Wings and the Maple Leafs.

Detroit Sports Zone and others are attempting to verify.
@971theticketxyt just said various reports out about the Winter Classic at the Big House between the Wings and Leafs.
That could just be referring to everyone talking about it now though.
Sources tell me reports of winter classic in the big house are premature. No talks about event yet
