Because we love ironic humor

Does anyone else think that 'Happy Valley' is a great name to host the proposed outdoor game between Pittsburgh and Philly next year?

I'd camp out in a field for that. I'd also bring mace.


Go Pens.

From my experience at Flyers/Pens games, it'd be more like "Valley of Bloody Death"


But it's Penn State Main Campus... do I get free parking?

"Happy Valley" at Beaver Stadium?

I think my mind's been trapped in the gutter for too long...

I would LOVE to go to an outdoor game, but I don't know if my warm California blood could handle it. Eek!

Teka: I'm so sleeping on your couch for this, hehe, but yes, I think that title might be a bit more appropriate.

Ckim: Ow. Lol, my mind didn't go there before, but it does now.

PA doesn't seem too cold in the winter, Weather.com says January average is about 19-20 lows to 38-40 highs. Not bad! Although, I guess that sounds horrible to someone from California.

These rumors are cropping up everywhere - last I heard it was a double header U of M/MSU and Wings/Leafs proposed at Ford Field in Detroit.......um, except that's not an outdoor stadium. Guys?

Steph - I read that on ESPN.com too (I think). And how they want to make this a yearly thing now. Maybe I should start putting away some money for a Winter Classic fund...

Elly - Well I was a coxswain up in northern California for a number of years. So I've been out on the water in high 20s-low 30s before. Granted that was at 5AM and the sun hadn't come out yet...

Why would they call it "Happy Valley" when "Death Valley" works so much better? :o)

Steph said...

Connie - I think it was ESPN where I saw it too (although really it was fom a link on Christy's blog). An every year thing might be fun, but I'm not going to lie, if they do Pens/Flyers next year I'm going to start getting a little pissed about all these Eastern Conference teams. I mean really, I'd like to care about the game SOME year... (Okay that was a little harsh :P But seriously!)

CKim said...

Steph - Seriously, gotta get some Western Conference love in the house. I mean, the Kings versus the Florida Panthers playing outdoors in ...New York?

Wow...that sounds ridiculous.
