Shots of hockey life from Wrigley Field
So, the ESPN.com NHL crew is in Chicago in advance of Thursday's Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks.
Scott Burnside, E.J. Hradek and Pierre LeBrun will check in later today with the latest from Wrigley Field, but we thought we'd give you a few shots from this morning's media tour of the famed ballpark.
Yes, the rooftop bleachers will be open for the outdoor game.
A view from the outfield bleacher seats. Not the best location to view the action on the ice, but we don't think the fans will mind.
The manual scoreboard at Wrigley has been converted to East and West, and scorekeepers will update the action during the Wings-Hawks game.
