Outdoor hockey came to Soldier Field for the first time in the venue??s legendary history on Feb. 17, 2013. Soldier Field played host to the inaugural Hockey City Classic - an outdoor college hockey doubleheader that featured premier programs: University of Notre Dame vs. Miami University (Noon start) and University of Minnesota vs. University of Wisconsin (3:30pm start). The Hockey City Classic was preceded by two weeks of winter festivities, including: two days of free public ice skating; youth, high school and adult hockey events; private ice rentals; and much more.

Sharon, Alan, and I bundled up and were blessed with a sunny day (drastically improving the 35-degree temperatures). Sadly, Miami lost, 2-1, but it still was a lot of fun!
