More importantly the you know talk to world junior championships which. Be taken place later on in December the reason why it's so important to talk about this now and to tell people about tickets for this outdoor game is I remembered the last world juniors here in buffalo great showing by the fans whenever the US played but. Especially whenever Canada played they love the world junior hockey we don't want the stadium to be overrun with Canadian. Exactly. World junior championships is like March Madness here in the United States that's excitement as they have in Canada. And the 29 of December we're going to be playing Canada in an outdoor game US Chris Cannon at new airfield the first time has ever meant a double IHF event. Outside and it's going to be here in buffalo also will be sent in another you know first here. And we think it'll be a lot like the winter classic I mean that was a great day you know ten years ago. It was just Hakim was an event people came out early this little but the snow that day it was a great atmosphere and open have the same amount. 129 to December this year. Yeah actually. Fans could go to the world junior game here in her field and then go to the winter classic in New York crane they can do both and that's the winter classic as I'm not on the first this is on the 29 on that Friday.
