Edmonton, AB - FC Edmonton are reportedly preparing the official FC Edmonton Zamboni for their upcoming home game at Clarke Stadium against Puerto Rico FC as temperatures are currently projected to be around -2 in the evening with the possibility of snow/rain on Saturday.
"We are excited to have the conditions in our favour," stated head coach Colin Miller. "IF the weather turns out as forecast, the official Zamboni is going to really clean up the prevailing layer of ice that typically will not leave our surface alone allowing us a clean skating...er...running path towards the goal."
Reportedly, Puerto Rico FC has no idea what they are about to get themselves into as players are bringing every bit of clothing they can wear for the potentially frigid temperatures.
However, local reports indicate that likely any snow will not stick resulting in a wasted opportunity to use the zamboni in game action as Paul McKenzie stated, "We will see what happens with the weather, but c'mon... game six is on Saturday."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the snow showers never develop.
