Damn, no joy.
here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
Damn, no joy.
Attendance at the Winter Classic: 105,491. Would be a new world record if verified by the Guinness World Records.

I thought the game was a sure sellout. Looks like it's still not certain this game will be the world record
It only took 5 and 3/4 periods for a Spartan to score a goal in Michigan Stadium.

Wtf. Is this U-7 soccer? Why is there a halftime to a 5 minute overtime period
To give teams equal time at both ends in an outdoor game.
Should do it after there's a whistle.
Damn, horn sounded for end change. What rotten timing.
Shootout. Put Homer in!
Wonder if we'll get a concert before the shootout by Little Jimmy and the Dickbeaters, or whoever it is they found to play earlier.
This has probably been said, but I love the uniforms in this game. And it's pretty awesome seeing red and blue out there together. I wish more games in every sport featured both teams' colored jerseys.
Leaf fans can't help themselves.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Berenson was coaching when Dufek was playing.
Dammit, they tie it.
Good grief, Jimmy. You can't give THAT one up.
Shit, they win.
Typical Wings result this season, indoors or outdoors.
I am happy. Both teams deserved a point. Glad to see the Leafs pick up the second.
Jimmy Howard is not good so far this season.
Well today's game is the first time he looked great. The only 2 goals allowed were flukes. Shootouts are stupid so can't put that on him as much as you could really.
Yes. Yes you can. Gus has played exceptionally in shoot outs. Jimmy has been awful. Like deer in the headlights bad.
Good game, unfortunately it ends up the way most Wings shootouts do.
And 2014 is starting great.
Another Shootout loss. Can't wait till they change this stupid format for Overtime.
Patch made the olympic team. Didnt know if he would
Max Pacioretty on the Olympic team.
Max Pacioretty is on the team. Jack Johnson is not.
I was really surprised JMFJ didn't make it. Anyone know why?
They wanted a defensemen to play with Suter or McDonagh, who are both left handed. Jack is a lefty, and they didn't feel comfortable with him playing his offhand.
I am a little confused that they left off Erik Johnson and Keith Yandle in favor of Justin Faulk and Cam Fowler. Not good choices.
It was also debate between management and the coaches. The coaches didn't like JMFJ's inconsistent play this season. Cam Fowler won out due to his more consistent game.
event regardless of the outcome.
Had a great and memorable afternoon with my dad. Also, I had absolutely no surprise when Jimmy Howard proceeded to look retarded in the shoutout.
I think that was the best sports event I have ever attended. Absolute beauty.
Favorite team playing in my favorite stadium on the campus of the greatest university in the world. Plus cold Molsons being served, Mayer Hawthorne, crazy Canadians everywhere, and a blizzard.
I really wanted to see an octopus on the ice, but that would require one hell of a toss.
