Someone needs to get the people over at EA Sports a map.
Leading up to the 2018 NHL Winter Classic on Monday, EA Sports’ official NHL Twitter account tried to get hockey fans fired up for the matchup between the Buffalo Sabres and the New York Rangers on New Year’s Day. The tweet, which has since be deleted, had one major problem.
EA Sports is correct it noting that Buffalo held the first ever Winter Classic and that the Sabres were technically the “home” team Monday, but this year’s outdoor game won’t be in upstate New York. The sports video game juggernaut must not have realized that Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, resides in Queens.
