The 1st Winter Classic hosted by Buffalo in 2008
DC is the home of the National Hockey League’s 2015 Winter Classic.
The Washington Capitals host the Chicago Blackhawks at Nationals Park on January 1st.
Yes, that means outdoors. Yes, it will be cold.
This annual hockey game (the 7th one) is one of the highlights of the NHL regular season.
This will be the first time that the Capitals have hosted the Winter Classic and the second time they have played in it (2012 in Philadelphia).
Not only is it outdoors, where fans are as cold as the players, but the teams usually sport throwback jerseys from far gone eras, which they are happy to sell to you.
Hockey fans in DC, this is the game to see.
College football fans, you can still TiVo the New Year’s Day bowl games and go instead to Nationals Park and have a classic good time.
Tickets are available via your least favorite resale site.
