Another exciting winter olympics has come and gone. Athletes competed to prove themselves as the best, hoping to achieve the greatest reward for the ultimate in human potential and spirit.
For most Chicagoans, ice hockey was the sport to watch. Fans of the sport even woke early to watch the games, shuffling off to the bars as early as six in the morning.
Why did Chicagoans have their eyes so intently set on this Olympic sport? Why would we walk through a foot of old dirty snow and endure frigid temperatures to great the day? Well because, first and foremost, Chicagoans love hockey. Beyond that, Chicagoans love their Blackhawks. The Stanley Cup champs had ten players total playing in the olympics for their respective countries. Most notably, Duncan Keith, Patrick Sharp, and Jonathan Toews, who played for the gold medal winning Canadian team.
Now, the Blackhawks are coming home to Chicago to play the Penguins in the NHL’s Stadium Series held at Soldier Field!
Soldier Field was designed by architects Holibird and Roche in 1919 and finished construction in October of 1924. It was originally named Grant Park Municipal Stadium but was renamed Soldier Field a year later. Originally Soldier Field was used for many different types of events including the historical boxing match held between heavyweights Jack Dempsey and and Gene Tunney and often drew crowds of over 100,000 people. In fact, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave a wartime visit to Soldier Field, over 150,000 spectators came to hear him speak. A number that overshadows the capacity of the stadium now at a mere 61,500. The stadium lost all of the seating when they renovated it back in 2003, and added what most Chicagoans refer to as the “UFO” which seemed to land right in the middle of the field.
On Saturday, the Blackhawks will take the field (or ice, or both?!) to compete with the Penguins in one of six outdoor games featured in the Stadium Series. They hope to gain a win and carry that momentum through the last remaining 8 weeks of the regular season.
While the weather is going to be bitterly cold, and the ticket prices being the highest of the Stadium Series so far at over $200, Soldier Field is anticipating a full stadium for the game. And with triple the capacity of the United Center, the Blackhawks can hope for record numbers of fans to be there, cold weather and all, to cheer them on, and to send them into the rest of the season with high hopes of repeating a Stanley Cup championship.
I am a born and raised Chicagoan and never knew how much fun I was missing. I have never been on anything like the Segway's before so I was nervous but within seconds our tour guides Casey and Andrew had us feeling like pros. They gave us a very informative evening along with fun and laughter. I would do it again and again. read more unedited reviews here...
By some stroke of luck my friend and I were the only two people on the Tour. Our guide, Johnathon, was absolutely fantastic. He gave us the full tour even though there were only two of us. I am a lifelong Chicago resident and yet I still learned things and saw things I didn't know. Best seventy bucks I have spent in years!Perry Buckley
