I’m not a hockey guy, even though I grew up in Minnesota, a state known for its hockey talent.
I’ve never attended an NHL game. It’s still on my to-do list along with hiking Pikes Peak.
With that said, I’d make the drive to Denver next year if the Colorado Avalanche are selected as a home site for the NHL’s Outdoor Winter Classic.
So what is the winter classic? It’s a professional hockey game outdoors inside a football or baseball stadium. Can you imagine a pro hockey game at Coors Field?
Adrian Dater at the Denver Post discusses the issue in more detail here.
I’ve attended college hockey games. I was at the World Arena the other day cheering for Colorado College. (They lost).
I’m not sure why, but a chance to bundle up and sit amongst some die-hard fans while squinting to see what they’re doing on a small-looking ice rink is appealing to me.
