So if you recall a few weeks back I wrote an article titled Are you not Entertained? about an outdoor game that the Austrian Hockey League was putting together where hockey players would go out and play a game where gladiators once battled for their lives.  Well according to this video it looked like a glorious moment and one that might have put the NHL’s Winter Classic to shame.  Totally not knocking the Winter Classic one bit but how do you hold a candle to the history that surrounded the fans?  You be the judge.
