One great thing about the NHL Winter Classic is that it grabs the attention of the non-hockey fan.
A perfect example of this is Evan Roberts of WFAN Sports Radio in New York. Evan is the co-host of the Joe (Joe Benigno) and Evan Show, a show that typically talks about baseball, basketball and football while talking about hockey may be every once in awhile.
Evan was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to talk about how he got into watching the Winter Classic, his thought’s on this year’s game and what the NHL can do to make it even better.
PH: How did you get interested in the NHL’s Winter Classic?
ER: When they announced the idea of an outdoor regular season NHL game, I couldn’t help but be intrigued. So like many others, I tuned in because of the curiosity factor. The fact that it snowed during the first game in Buffalo only made an interesting event even more so. I have watched everyone (despite the weather not being as perfect every time) since.
