I live just down the street from the Big House in Ann Arbor and had a chance to go to the Winter Classic there back in 2014 but declined because it seems like the seats are all so far away that you can't see much.

That was very true. It was also stupidly cold. Also, the venue sucks. The concourses are too narrow to handle the number of people. It was a miserable expereince.

Might have been better with temperatures 20+ degrees warmer, but the bitter cold amplified every other inconvenience and annoyance.

I heard horror stories of people urinating in the concourses because the lines to the bathrooms were so long. Glad I stayed home to watch it in my comfortable, warm house with my own bathroom and my own, much cheaper alcohol. lol

Alcohol? The most popular drink was hot chocolate.

I'm assuming 79,990 of those tickets were purchased by Blackhawks fans, right?

The Blackhawks weren't good this year so they don't have fans any more.

There are going to be some mad football fans when they realize they bought tickets for the wrong event at the Cotton Bowl.
