A beautiful day for the Red Wings' home opener

Rochester, N.Y. - The Rochester Red Wings picked a gorgeous day for a home opener!

Normally, the team plays the home opener right away. The past few years, that hasn't paid off, with sloppy conditions, bad turnout and cancellations.

This year started with an eight-game road trip, and Friday, the team was back at Frontier Field.

Dan Mason, victorious in his "50 degree guarantee" made sure everyone knew King Mason the Meteorologist was in the building - by appearing on the field dressed in royal attire!

A beautiful day and solid attendance - and while the Wings would fall to the Chiefs 3-2, there were still plenty of reasons to celebrate at Frontier Field.
