The ice rink and Zamboni's were delivered to Wrigley yesterday to set up for the "Winter Classic" between the Black Hawks and Redwings Jan. 1, 09. They might have a little competition for TV air time that day, what do ya think?

Wish I could go! I went to Lambeau Field to watch the UW Badgers play a few years ago - what a cool experience! It was a perfect day at Lambeau, cold and overcast. They're hoping for no sun on new year's, because even at temps below 20, direct sunlight reflecting off the dark paint in the ice could make the ice too soft. Crazy! And what's up with their unloading procedure of the Honda sponsored Zamboni? I've unloaded a few off flatbeds before, but NEVER like that!

Me thinks that since the black one was succesfully unloaded the blue honda one might possibly just rolled off after it was unstrapped w/ the others dealing with unloading the black on.

Either way, i don't see any ramps in the picture, and the head of the zamboni is the expensive part if I remember correctly. Wasn't that the deal w/ those people who stole the zamboni and ran out for burger king last year?

The numbnutz drove it off the trailer before the truck/trailer/rollback operator could lower the bed down. They had video of it on the news last night. It came close to rolling over on his butt!

It was close to -18 C, -30 C (-22 F) with wind chill here 5 yrs ago when the Oilers hosted this game, still got 57k+ fans out.
