When NIGHTMARES come true. At the 2019 Winter Classic, no less!
The Winter Classic is NHL’s second most exciting event next to the Stanley Cup! One would think with a SELL OUT crowd the venue would be prepared. One would think. However that wasn't the case!
2019 Winter Classic was held at Notre Dame Stadium in Indiana USA. Boston Bruins vs Chiago Blackhawks was on the menu Jan 1st to kick off the new year. According to several attendees on Twitter, Notre Dame Stadium couldn’t meet the beer and food demands of a sellout crowd of 76,126 fans — many of whom couldn’t get a cold beer or snack after the first intermission. Chaos ensued, via Twitter anyways....

For the record, #WinterClassic ran out of food during the first intermission and they don’t have much beer left now. I haven’t eaten in three days and am probably gonna perish before I leave this place.— phonymahoney (@phoneymahoney) January 1, 2019
@NHL Huge fail at the Winter Classic @NDFootball today. Beginning of the 2nd period and they ran out of food and beer at the concession stands. People are pissed. Catholics don’t drink alcohol though so it’s ok.— Chiautographguy (@joey_epps) January 1, 2019
