Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks head to South Florida today to take on the Florida Panthers, but before we dive into that game I have some thoughts on the Winter Classic and outdoor games. 

The Chicago Blackhawks were selected this past week to play in another Winter Classic in 2019 at Notre Dame Stadium against the Boston Bruins.

First off, I just want to say I really like outdoor hockey games! They could have one every week and it would be fun for me to watch just because it is different.

I will say that the Chicago Blackhawks game against the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field really brought back the older fans to the franchise.  Sure there are die-hards that went to games through the dark ages, but there were a bunch of us fans that were finally turned off by Bill Wirtz and the terrible product on the ice that we just didn’t care anymore.  With Rocky and this new exciting product on the ice in Wrigley Field, it brought us back to the team of our youth.

Secondly, I wrote a few years back that the Chicago Blackhawks should be hosting a game at Notre Dame Stadium, I wrote this back in 2013!

Lastly, I think outdoor games should be played on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years.  You could start the Thanksgiving Day game around the 4th quarter of the Lions game and get a huge crowd because that game is rarely close and people will miss the first part of most football games that don’t include their own team.

On Christmas Day, it’s just the NBA and that is just a natural 2nd option or first option for many people that afternoon, and New Years is already being played.  See, 3 outdoor games every year, and that way people can’t complain it’s always the Blackhawks!

Anyways, Here are some morning links to start your weekend
