Blackhawks Mon Jul 07 2008

Forget the Ball, Watch the Puck Drop

It's official (sort of). The much-speculated Blackhawks game at Wrigley Field (which we wrote about earlier) appears to be a go, according to various sources. The game against the Detroit Red Wings reportedly will be held on New Year's Day, though the official announcement is slated for next week. Let's see... New Year's Day, outdoor hockey in Chicago, hangovers. Should be an interesting time.
