Villanova Will Play Drexel in the “Crosstown Classic” at Citizens Bank Park on January 5

Holy hell, it’s as if some NHL marketing exec woke up this week and said, “Hey! We have a sheet of ice sitting in a ballpark in Philadelphia, perhaps we should monetize more than we are.”

That’s exactly what they’re doing.

Today, Drexel announced that the Dragons will play the – my – Villanova Wildcats in the “Crosstown Classic” at Citizens Bank Park on January 5. 

Now, not to go too preppy on you, but I have the distinct pleasure of being an alum of two schools that will play at CBP: Villanova and Malvern Prep (at which I played), who will play La Salle on January 4. I’m still holding out for my THL Oilers squad to get the nod for “Squirtfest” on January 6. Fingers crossed.

Incredibly, no time was given in the press release, but you can get tickets here for $10.

Thanks to Phillydekes for the heads up

  1. The fact that you went to Villanova explains soooooooo much about your overall douchiness. It actually makes perfect sense.=

  2. Yeah, wgas, wgaf about vanillanova or mama-verna hahahaha!
    That said, Go Drexel Dragons!
    PS: Get ready for more of that NBC Cross Promotion during the WC and SNFs now that Howard Stern is the new judge on America’s Got Talent. If Laddie goes on on AGT, Stern would also call him a Slappy Clown!

  3. Dear Kyle,
    The Mainline is an awesome place. I know. I grew up there.
    But there are other places to see in this world. Step out of the nest at some point in your life.

  4. Kyle,
    As a Fellow Malvern Prep AND Villanova grad (we talked about the spanish class thing) I will be in attendance at, at least one game if not both. Round up a spot to tailgate and contact the alumni associations?
    hit me up on my e-mail address.

  5. jkl- the other way to put that would be, i work from my own place, read and write about sports all day and make money to do it.
    that guy- will do.

  6. Hahah, Laddie. Money won’t get you everything in life but it makes that everything-else in life much easier to get!

  7. they could bump this game over to Rizzo Rink, would anyone give a fuck? Would it sell out the metal bleachers? That being said, Kyle is in quite the envious position… stop “haitin”
