Maybe it's just me but I fail to see what's so "hilarious" about that.
I think the Ice Bowl is a cool idea and would've gotten (or tried to get) tickets if the whole trip, lodging & game was financially viable for me (unfortunately, at the moment, it's not). I guess I just don't get the whole, "put down the NHL every chance possible" thing.
Let me explain my position. Of all the cities you could hold this event, why Buffalo? Yes, you're almost assured of a cold day in a great hockey town, but the chance of a snowstorm washing out the whole thing is remarkably high compared to other cities. It just reeks to me of more foolish management by the NHL (in addition to the date of the game when people will either be too drunk or too engrossed in CFB to pay attention to the game).
I would find it hilarious that the NHL would look bad because it's so predictable. I put the odds at 10-1 that a snowstorm wipes this thing out (for the record, I hope it goes off without a hitch and is a smashing success) just because the NHL is luckless and poorly run. I love watching the NHL look foolish because it's the thing that stands in the way of its own game, that's all.
This is so wildy contradictory that I don't even know how to respond.
I'm no fan of the way the NHL runs things but I don't sit around hoping they fall flat on their faces at every opportunity.
