Outdoor Hockey Games


Recommended Posts

Have these things totally jumped the shark or what? I can't even keep track of how many college and NHL outdoor games there are coming up this season and next season.

BTW, nice comment by Lou Nanne at the announcement of the Minnesota vs Ohio State game...something to the effect of how he could not believe that Minnesota hasn't hosted an outdoor game yet since this fad started. Gee, Lou, where were they going to hold an outdoor game in Minneapolis/St Paul in the past few years prior to the opening of Target Field and TCF Bank Stadium?

One NHL game on New Year's Day is plenty...heck, make it two and play one in Canada. But Minnesota women vs Minnesota State Mankato? Really?

Way. Too. Many.

I like the idea of the outdoor game, but I'm talking 1 - maybe 2 - each year.

I agree, the novelty was cute when it started but like everything else they've gone overboard.

They'll probably keep scheduling more of these things until a couple guys tear up knees because of bad ice, if and when that ever happens.
