ON THE FROZEN TUNDRA. When my dad was courting my mom, they watched her brother play an outdoor hockey game in Green Bay.

The tradition of outdoor hockey in Green Bay just grew. The University of Wisconsin hosted Ohio State on a rink set up in Lambeau Field. It was newsworthy enough that the local TV station, which otherwise only notices a Wisconsin hockey team when it wins the national title, showed some tape of the game-ending empty net goal. Badgers 4, Buckeyes 2, 40,890 fans. This was a non-conference game as Ohio State along with Michigan and Michigan State would rather not spend the money traveling to North Dakota and Colorado let alone Madison to be beaten. SIEVE!
