University of Michigan to hold special Winter Classic meeting


Via the Associated Press:

The University of Michigan Board of Regents has called a special meeting to discuss renting Michigan Stadium to the NHL for the Winter Classic.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday morning. If the regents give their OK as expected, that would likely be one of the last hurdles to bringing the NHL’s annual showcase to one of the most iconic venues in college sports.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie is reporting that an official announcement will be made Thursday, suggesting tomorrow’s meeting is a mere formality.

The game is expected to feature the Detroit Red Wings hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Hopefully they figured out a way to serve beer.
