Time-Lapse Video Of Citizens Bank Park Preparations For Winter Classic Is Neat

With the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic only a few weeks away, the preparations involved in transforming Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park from a stadium designed for baseball into an acceptable and functional venue for an NHL hockey game have been stepped up to breakneck speed. Look how fast the workers are getting after it in the video. What’s that?  Oh, that’s what time-lapse means? I thought it meant something about how it appears that the workers are spending their time running laps and “lapse” was how the British spell the word or something. Huh.

Anyhoo, the hometown Flyers will face the New York Rangers on New Year’s Day and as you can see in the above video, an extraordinary amount of work goes into staging such an entertaining event, so it’s well worth having a look-see. Plus, the time-lapse (see, I know what it means now) nature of the video is pretty neat. All it needs is some “Yakety Sax” as a soundtrack and it would be gold.
