Y!: # 2 Posted on 3.6.03 1605.16 Reposted on: 3.6.10 1610.56 I hope it doesn't rain. Or snow. Or get oppressively cold. Or get oppressively hot. Or get very windy. Or be humid. Or..... There are just so many things that could go wrong, but I still hope it works out.

But it's a great idea-I hope it works out. Didn't the University of Michigan do something like this last year?

The Oilers' arena only seats 20,000 or so. The old-timers game beforehand seems almost more interesting. Gretzky~~!

I don't think they're going to have to worry about it becoming opressively hot or humid in Edmonton during hockey season. I think it's a really cool idea........it will be interesting if it snows, though.

If this were Denver or Kansas City you might have something to worry about.... I've surprised they haven't tried this in basketball yet, even though one could say they do by using domes(i.e. Michigan State v Kentucky at Ford Field in December) but can you imagine Duke v UCLA at the Rose Bowl?

I've already got September 15 (the day tix go on sale to the general public) circled on my calendar ROAD TRIP!! Welcome to my world. But hell, why couldn't it be Flames/Oilers? It'd be cheaper, and they'd definately sell out faster than Canadiens/Oilers. I guess they just want to have CBC get good ratings.

What may be even cooler than the actual game will be the legends game of old-school Oilers (lead by Gretzky) against old-school Canadiens (lead by Lafleur.)

Torontonians love their hockey. REVENUE~~~!
