NHL Winter Classic Rink Update: Late Thursday, Closeups

New, 13 comments

Since a storm is headed this way, I thought I'd head over to Wrigley again this afternoon for some updated photos, especially after I saw the NHL Network video link on the post below, showing they had made considerable progress today. The lights were already on at 3 pm when I went there, so they must have been on all day.

Also ran into Brad from Cubs security again; he mentioned that they were intending to get the ice laid down tonight.
