Photos: Amanda Bowen
Unable to secure a photo credential for the Winter Classic from the NHL, we went on the open market to buy a ticket. Then we saw the prices (the most expensive in five years) and had a small panic attack. That is until reader Sarah Heffern reached out to us. One of her friends was sick, unable to come, and needed someone to claim the ticket. She offered it to us at a discounted price.
Because of Sarah’s generosity (read her account of the game), we now bring you these incredible photos from Amanda Bowen. She manages to capture nearly the entire experience. Below are photos from the spectator plaza, the merch area, the USO Board, and inside Nats Park. She also brings you the Brouwer Rangers, Ovie the Bulldog, that sick flyover, Kathryn Tappen, and a celebrating Troy Brouwer.
We’ve linked to the high-resolution version for each photo, so we encourage you to click on your favorites. These are truly incredible pics. The shadows and light are crazy.
