The Chuck Baranowski Winter Classic has evolved since last years Winter Classic.  At first I wanted to go with the Chuck Baranowski Memorial, then I switched it to the Chuck Baranowski Tribute and then after that all I heard was Tenacious D in my head.  All this to say, I present to you this years Chuck Baranowski Winter Classic!

Last year a lot of fun memories were created.  I am looking forward to this February mostly because of the improvements I have made since last year.  It will be one for the books, I have almost reached my 16 team limit in the senior division and have half the limit for the Master.
