Goodbye to Outdoor Games
With Michigan's 4-1 win over Ohio State on Sunday in Cleveland, and Frozen Fenway finally wrapping up the day before with Boston College's 2-1 victory over Northeastern, the NCAA has seen the last of its outdoor hockey games this season.
The outdoor ice hasn't even melted yet, and talk has already started up of hosting games next year at Michigan Stadium, or Comerica Park in Detroit. The novelty of playing outside has definitely worn off, but both the NHL and NCAA keep pushing the great outdoors as if it was the greatest thing since the Zamboni.
Guess we'd all just better get used to it—and bundle up.
