 The Hawks practicing on the ice at Wrigley Field

I am so looking forward to this! Usually I only watch college football on New Year’s Day, but not today! I will watch the Rose Bowl later, but I am so psyched for this game. Go Hawks!

2009 Winter Classic: Blackhawks vs. Red Wings at Wrigley Field on Jan. 1, 2009

For only the 3rd time ever, for a regular season game, the Blackhawks will play the Red Wings outside, in the cold, where hockey should be played! And Wrigley Field will become ice, rather than grass. The game will be televised, as was last year’s in Buffalo. Normally, Jan. 1 is a college football day for me. Not this time! I would LOVE to go to this game. Maybe I can win the lottery…
