Winter Classic will start at 3 p.m., not 1 p.m.

You'll have two more hours of drinking before tomorrow's Winter Classic. Just like with the Alumni Game on Saturday, the start time for the main event between the Flyers and Rangers on Monday has been pushed back from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in an attempt to avoid the hot afternoon sun that'll bake the ice into a soft, mushy mess.

It's going to be warm again tomorrow, but that's not the problem. It's all the sun, and that's why it's just a two hour delay. By 3 p.m., the ice on the field at Citizens Bank Park is mostly hidden by shadows, eliminating the problems that plague the crew earlier in the day.

Anyway, this is probably better. The scene at the end of the Alumni Game yesterday, ending under the lights, was pretty damn awesome. And for real.... two more hours of drinking. Gates open at 1 p.m.
