2011 Pens vs Caps Winter Classic at Heinz Field and New 3rd Jerseys

I hope you guys were paying attention 2 months ago to the day when we told you that the Winter Classic was going to be at Heinz Field on January 1st. We here at PenguinPoop were paying attention and booked a bunch of rooms at the Renaissance downtown for New Years Eve and will be partying like rock stars. As of now most of the downtown hotels are already booked for New Years Eve and New Years.

They will be making the official announcement today along with notice of another outdoor game on February 20th between two Canadian teams, the Montreal Canadiens and Calgary Flames and it will take place in Calgary at at McMahon Stadium.

During the first Winter Classic the Pittsburgh Penguins wore a throwback powder puff blue jersey which later became their third jersey, it just so happens that the Penguins are supposed to have a new third jersey this year and it is rumored to be a darker blue jersey similar to the 1967 version of the Penguins jersey. My guess is that they will be wearing them once again for the Winter Classic, which will be a bummer because it would be cool to see the Penguins donning the Black and Gold when playing in the home of the Steelers.

    I would love to see the Pens make a version of the “Russian Penguin” or the WBS Penguin. More muscular, more action oriented.

    I would like to reiterate my offer of lodging at my house and transportation to Heinz Field for the price of one ticket to the game. At first I was kind of joking but now it seems like a perfectly viable option to get their. New Years Eve hangover cures not included.

    That’s why Mrs. Pronovost is the best. She had us reserve the rooftop suite at the Renaissance for New Year’s Eve the minute she heard the rumor about the Winter Classic. Now, it turns out she made the right call, and that’s where the party will be!!!!!!
