NHL to announce Pittsburgh will host 2011 Winter Classic

We all knew it was happening anyways, but Bob McKenzie puts the nail in the coffin of doubt:

NHL will announce Friday what has previously been reported: Was vs Pit @ Heinz Field Jan. 1 and Mtl vs. Cgy at McMahon Stadium in mid-Feb.


Cue the haters: "Wah, wah, it's not fair Pittsburgh just played in a WC three years ago!  Why would the league want to showcase arguably it's highest profile team that has the game's most famous current player on the biggest regular season stage?  It's not fair!"

Enough crying.  Go Pens.
