The real holiday

In Hockey on January 1, 2014 at 1:02 AM

Tomorrow is the real holiday. I, and many others will be spent watching the NHL Winter Classic.

That is, of course unless Gary Bettman plans to carry out his asinine idea that the 2014-15 season needs a whopping 14 outdoor games! And seriously, what the fuck is the point?

The Winter Classic and the Heritage Classic where all that we needed. The heritage classic was always played by Edmonton and Toronto because the Canadians didn’t care that two American teams played in America, but, then Gary Bettman decided too cancel it and include the few Canadian teams in the fold of the Winter Classic. Now he wants to expand the one day a year we have to shut off the terrible NFL games and the 30,000 college games.

For that matter, remember when the Rose Bowl mattered before they added the other 50 billion college games? Now every college team has a game they can play on New Year’s day! The only NHL trends that need outdoor games are the teams that actually play in the snow. The Detroit Red Wings, the Wild, all five Canadian teams; basically the teams that actually play where it snows. Haas L.A.ever seen snow? Has Doger Stadium? No. Minnesota and Boston should have one!

I’m not saying that the Outdoor Series won’t be entertaining, because it’s hockey, it will be! What I’m trying to say is that we don’t need a hundred outdoor games a year. Pond hockey is fine because that’s just kids playing the games in a frozen bit of water, something that cities like Phoenix can’t understand, nor should they.

I hope that the powers that be realize that the Outdoor Series shouldn’t be played in every town, but rather only one game a year is what makes it special. We don’t celebrate Christmas every day and it’s special as fuck!
