We're totally on board with the NHL's somewhat-new gimmick of playing a New Year's Day game on an outdoor rink. Bring in the new year with hockey in 26-degree weather! Now that's living!
This year's Winter Classic (it's like the Fall Classic, only it's Winter and it's hockey, but still.) pits the defending-champion Detroit Red Wings against the Chicago Blackhawks. And they'll be playing the game on that field up above. They're going to put a freakin' hockey rink on Wrigley Field. Whaaaaaat?
We can picture a dad with his 9-year-old son enjoying their first-ever trip to Wrigley, both wearing their Cubbie blue, donning ear-to-ear smiles and ready to buy some peanuts and hotdogs only to find out, wait, fuck, what sport is this?!
