Why Wrigley? – Seating For “Winter Classic 2009”
The Blackhawks have released some more info on their WinterClassic. I don’t know about you but I’m a wee bit underwhelmed. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a cool idea and one long overdue. I love the idea of pros playing hockey outside. It’s how most of us first played ice hockey – outside (Personally, I relish the opportunities I can play outside in the winter.) But, I think the Blackhawks’ own headline says it all:
That is marketing talk for, “This is really cool and really expensive for the fans but the sight lines are going to stink!”
For tix that are $75, $225 and $325 this game should be deciding who gets the Stanley Cup, not who can keep their binoculars from freezing while players keep their A%%es from freezing.
