Excuse Me Waiter, There's Some Hockey In My Football

We talked yesterday about the logos being introduced for this season's Winter Classic, that will see the Capitals travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins at Heinz Field. At the announcement, players from both teams tried to hit wrist shots through the uprights from 70 yards away.

This was a pretty neat idea, but I'm a little confused about something; don't these two teams hate each other? What's up with all this contrived camaraderie? I want to see a press conference like the ones held before a big boxing match. Sidney and Ovie standing chest to chest, not saying anything, just staring right through one another. That, is what would get me most excited for the Winter Classic. Having said that, this was still pretty cool. More videos after the jump.
