Did you know they are playing a hockey game in Wrigley Field on New Years Day? I am sitting here watching the Chargers/Broncos game and I just saw the commercial. It is the NHL Winter Classic and the Chicago Blackhawks will be playing the Detroit Redwings. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
First of all, I can’t help thinking hockey players cannot possibly be good for the infield. I mean really, look at this:

My main concern, however, is the weather. I have to wonder if whoever came up with this genius idea has ever been to Chicago in the wintertime. And specifically, have they ever been to Wrigley Field?
I ask this because it gets cold in Chicago, really really cold. And in the winter when the wind is blowing in, I imagine Wrigley Field is especially nasty. I have almost frozen to death in the Friendly Confines in April. And this is January.
Somebody is going to freeze. And it will be their own damn fault. Fools.
