2021 Winter Classic


Recommended Posts

Do you think this will still happen on New Year’s Day as the season opener? Would they do it still without fans? 

Scheduled 1/1/21 in Minneapolis, Blues vs Wild.

The Winter Classic has become quite the tradition at our house and really hope it’s still happening. It’s pretty much the Super Bowl for us.

I went and it was amazing. Even more amazing was there were tickets for as little as $10. (The first 6 rows with limited view.)

I had tickets not once but twice. Both times I asked my wife if she wanted to use them. Both times she declined. Then we are sitting at home New Year’s Day watching it and she says, you know, we should have gone.

I divorced her.

I would think so yes. National TV $s & eyeballs has to be the primary piece of it, in attendance fans distant second.

It would be a perfect kickoff for the season.

Yeah that’s what I’m thinking as well. Would be a shame if they passed that up. The more I think about it, they would be crazy not to do it. Brings even more pressure to make sure that 1/1 start date happens.

Man I miss the NHL.

I heard talk of opening the season with an outdoor game without fans in the Rockies on the frozen waters of Lake Louise.

That could be absolutely amazing.

Love the idea, but two American outdoor games? Unless they’re thinking about relocating the Winter Classic though I can’t see that happening. 
 

It would be a brilliant location.

If memory serves I think I spoke with you on the phone, almost bought tickets from you. Changed my username since so you might not recognize my new name.

Don’t worry, they’ll only be 4000 more of these unique fun experiences to enjoy.

I definitely agree that the uniqueness of these games wore out years ago. I’d still like to go to one at whatever the stadium will be called in the future in orchard park
