2009 Winter Classic Game At Wrigley Field

January 26, 2009

Commemorating one of the most remarkable days in the life of Wrigley Field, and one of the most amazing events in Chicago Blackhawks history! Now a New Year’s Day tradition, the NHL scheduled its 2009 Winter Classic in a stadium known for nearly a century of joyous days under the hot afternoon sun, but never for winter sports. Few could envision how the grand old park would look decked out for hockey on a winter’s afternoon. However, when it was all said and done (despite the game’s result, a loss to the hated Detroit Red Wings), all who saw it could certainly say: this was AMAZING!

From photographer Rob Arra’s legendary Everlasting Images collection, this spectacular print takes you back to that unique afternoon in Wrigleyville, giving you a breathtaking inside view of the scene during the pre-game festivities, with the players lined up at their respective blue lines for the singing of the National Anthem. From the normally lush green playing field now turned snow-white, to the fans packed with parka-wearing fanatics, to the familiar Wrigley Field features, to the rooftop parties across the street, to the Chicago skyline in the distance, it’s all here! Whether you were there in person on that wonderful winter day, are a serious Blackhawks or Red Wings fan, or are a lover of that legendary hockey arena called Wrigley Field, this is for you. Complete with sharp white border, commemorative title, and official NHL and Winter Classic logos, this is both a beautiful work of photographic sports art for your wall, and a valuable collector’s item for years to come.

2008-2009 NHL Season-Mid-Season Report

January 7, 2009
The 2008-2009 NHL season is at it’s midway point. There have been a ton of great hits, saves and goals. The action has been both intense and fierce. The power house teams, the Sharks, Red Wings, Capitals and Flames have all continued to dominate the league, as they all sit at the top of their respective divisions. The Bruins and Flyers have both been major surprises this season. While both teams are in first place in their division, the big surprise is the convincing fashion in which they’ve done it, having dismantled many high quality teams in the process.
As per usual, veterans Joe Thornton, Jarome Iginla and Marian Hossa lead both their teams and the league in many offensive categories. These players seem to be counted upon year after year. Young superstars Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin each continue to dominate the National Hockey League. With tremendous speed, talent and physical attributes, these players will control the game of hockey for years to come.
There is a new breed of young superstars that are currently making their ascent in the NHL. These players all have superb skill, desire and flash, and should all be factors in the NHL for quite some time. With that said, Sports Poster Warehouse is celebrating the great start to the season and to these young, up and coming stars with brand new NHL player posters.
