Empire State Building to shine in Winter Classic colors
 
http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=608411

Nice to see the league getting some recognition outside of the niches. :handclap::nod:

I was going to post this before. Pretty cool.

007 12-27-2011 07:30 PM

That is cool, except that I'd prefer a partisan, homer, all NYR colour-scheme!

McMonster 12-27-2011 07:38 PM

why even bother with Flyers colors... Let a building in Philly light up orange. Not a big deal though, still pretty cool.

Swedish Fish 12-27-2011 07:41 PM

That's awesome :yo:

IBleedNYRBlue 12-27-2011 07:50 PM

Awesome, except it would be better if it would just be Blue and Red/White.

Clowes Line 12-27-2011 07:52 PM

Very cool. Too much Orange, blehhhhh :cry:

Why the hell do the Flyers have to be represented? Screw them.

Kane One 12-27-2011 07:56 PM

I think the reason they put Flyer colors there was because HBO asked for the WC colors, not the Rangers. I'll bet my life that the only reason they wanted it lit up is for the opening video of the game.

clmetsfan 12-27-2011 11:09 PM

This is some bull----. Since when does the Empire State Building, the most iconic symbol of New York, show colors of our hated rivals???

Bird Law 12-28-2011 12:46 AM

What moron thought to shine ****ing PHILLY colors on the Empire State Building? Who the **** thought that was a good idea?

So what? Light the stupid statue of Rocky up in Flyers colors. I mean, that's the only thing that city has, anyway. Shine some stupid black and orange on that thing and use that in the video. This is the Empire ****ing State Building. Why the hell are Philly colors on it?

A disgrace.

That's something you'd feel pretty comfortable betting your life on? Because it's kind of out there. 24/7 is a documentary, they're not trying to influence things like that so they can have better footage.

24/7 is also (slightly) reality television. Not saying it's anywhere near as bad as, say, Khloe and Lamar (or some trite like that), but still reality TV. They want viewers, so I wouldn't be surprised if HBO did ask for the Flyers colors to be put up there.

KingWantsCup 12-28-2011 03:32 PM

Seriously, if they're going to represent the winter classic don't make 70% of the lighting Flyers orange! Where's the common sense?

Umm they do have the Liberty Bell, it is kind of historically important.

Just sayin'

Well I wouldn't bet my life on anything. I was just saying that to emphasize how much I think that's the reason why they did it. And you don't think they did that to get better footage? It's obvious HBO or the NHL asked the Empire State Building to do it. It's not like they wasted their time to ask them to do it and not use it for footage.

The Empire State Building is known to change the colors of their lights for certain events. If there was a building in Philadelphia that did that, they would do the same thing.

How about they light up the charging bull's balls in Flyers colors instead.

Blueshirt Special 12-28-2011 03:57 PM

Gotta remember to check it out on the way home tonight from the helix

TonyTheGr8 12-28-2011 04:02 PM

Yet another example of the utter lack of respect for the Rangers in this town. If this was any other NY team (especially the precious Knicks), you could bet your *** that the other team's colors wouldn't be represented in anyway, shape or form! :shakehead
