Hockey City Classic: Cool and Literally FreezingPosted: July 20, 2012
So the trend of having an outdoor hockey game is extending to the Irish. The NHL famously has The Winter Classic, pitting two good teams with awesome sweaters against one another in a huge stadium on a crisp winter afternoon. Bringing players back to their pond hockey roots.
On February 17th the Irish will face Miami in Soldier Field. The second time this will happen this academic year. To be honest I didn’t think people went to Miami to play hockey… Oh ND will be playing Miami, Ohio…. that makes sense.
The Hockey City Classic, as the event is being named is a doubleheader with the Irish facing Miami OHIO in one game and Wisconsin taking on Minnesota. Anyway. I’m pumped and even though it will be cold, it will be awesome to see the Irish outside and the atmosphere will be incredible.
