Las Vegas Wranglers Will Host Indoor Winter Classic

from Paul Delos Santos of the Las Vegas Sun,

Las Vegas Wranglers President Billy Johnson loves promotions that are quirky and outside of the box. So when people in the Wranglers front office came up with a way to mock the locked out National Hockey League, Johnson was all for it.

Next up on the Wranglers' list of goofy promotions: the Indoor Winter Classic, set to take place Jan. 1 against the Ontario Reign....

Doors around the Orleans Arena will be open, allowing air into the arena in hopes of making it cooler than usual. Johnson said there also are talks of potentially getting snow to fall inside the arena.

"The world's first outdoor game inside," Johnson said. "We're hope that it's actually cold out. We want people to bundle up. We hope there will be some snow flurries."

A trophy is being created in anticipation for the event, but Johnson said it won’t be anything extravagant.

“Maybe a lock, chain and some duct tape,” Johnson said of the trophy.

LOLs.  How appropriate.

I have a voucher that I was saving for the Over-18 Game on Feb. 4, but this is a very tempting event to cash that in.
