The NY Rangers played the LA Kings at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas on September 27, 1991.



I also have this photo from 2007, when the NHL laid out a spec rink to see if Yankee Stadium could host a game. Since the dimensions are the same at the new stadium, so its safe to assume we will see a similar setup there if it ever gets the chance to host a Winter Classic.

Cardboard-Tube Dueling

Cardboard-Tube Dueling is tournaments and battles where cardboard tube fighters go head-to-head in an attempt to break their opponents tube without breaking their own. The events also focus on cardboard costumes and theatrics. These events are often held at public parks throughout the summer, are open to everyone ages 5 and up, and emphasize fun over competition.

I like how most baseball stadiums make halfway decent football stadiums, at least when the field can be placed right next to one of the stands (unlike in Yankee stadium).
