We’re officially 29 days away from the Winter Classic. It’s time to chug vitamin water and start running 6-minute miles on the treadmill because that’s the only way you’re going to be able to physically handle the crush of Winter Classic promotional material coming your way. On this boring Wednesday night, NBC released a new commercial, the Caps wore their Winter Classic pants, and season-ticket holders got their awesomely designed tickets for the event.
It’s okay to be super excited– in fact, the way things are going this season, this might be the only thing worth being excited for all year.
(I’m such a pewpy pants right now. Please start winning games, team I love.)
If you love weather metaphors from political leaders, NBC’s promo has got you covered. As Barack Obama says, “let us brave once more the icy currents and endure what storms may come,” NBC shows the Capitol building (without its scaffolding) as snow falls. That beautiful wintery landscape will be the first thing you remember when you wear a tank top and shorts to National Park on January 1 because it’s 78 degrees outside. #DCWeather
Look at these pants. They are very beautiful pants indeed. If only I got this kind of positive feedback when I put my own pants on in the morning before work. It’s a struggle.
As a real-life typographer and designer, please let me just sit here and gush over this ticket design. I’d put this thing in a plastic case and never let it get creased ever, ever.
