Unless this winter is like last year, we are going to be frigid. Soldier Field is right by the lake and it looks like we won't be protected from the wind at all. Nothing a flask can't fix I suppose.

Drink a bit on the L to get there, then the long walk will warm you up, from my friends that have been to a lot of these games, it's the standing still, even in groups that makes it rather rough.

I might have to actually wear pants, especially if it's below freezing. One game no problem, two games and a lot of sitting/standing around and I should probably be careful, unfortunately my tolerance for the cold is going down with the years and rooming with people that use too much heat. Usually it's shorts year round even in -17F weather, but for that long with the wind...probably not.

I was at the outdoor Vikings/Bears game at the Bank so I'll use that as a template. I've also learned from 10 years of deer hunting that it's really easy to get cold when you're not moving so yes, I'd advise wearing some pants.

Should probably note that Soldier Field is a good half-mile from the L.

And that it's warmer the closer you are to the lake.

On the contrary, it is basically ON the lake.

And its NEVER warmer closer to the lake. Many people in Duluth, MN don't have A/C in their house because of the lake effect. Chicago is not a tropical climate.

Technically, it is warmer closer to the lake.

OOOOOH I'm an idiot. Can you tell how many times I've been to Chicago? All I did was drive past Soldier field when it was under construction like 10 years ago.

In the summer it's cooler by the lake as water has a much higher specific heat than other substances such as air. This means that the lake (which also has a very high volume) takes significantly longer to heat up and effectively soaks up a lot of the nearby area's heat. That's why people in Duluth are so upset in the summer by the words "east wind." A wind across the lake carries the cold air from over the lake out to land.

However, in the winter, the reverse is true. Since the lake has spent all summer absorbing this thermal energy, and the specific heat of this water is so much higher than the surrounding air, it takes far longer to cool off. While the air temperature can easily shift 20-30 degrees over 24 hours, the lake won't move even a full degree over that time period. This leads to an effect where the air around the lake absorbs that heat, leading to a "warmer by the lake" feature. This is why while in the summer the temperature at Sky Harbor International (the airport on Park Point) will often be 10 degrees cooler than the temperature at Duluth International (the airport on top of the hill), in the winter the reverse is true.

No worries. Last time I went to Soldier Field was the year before they built the spaceship so it's been a while for me too.

First day of practice and Benik breaks a leg, likely out two months. Wonderful

Gophers begin the year with a 7-0 win over Lethbridge. As far as Wild prospects go, Haula looked good with an assist and got stopped on a shorthanded breakaway.

just watched the highlights of that game and had one thought "So happy a Gopher team murdered a team that they should." Too often have we seen Gopher hockey teams be better than other teams but play down to their levels for some reason.

Not that it really matters but Haula had 2 assists.

So many people on this board feel like he needs to prove himself. I figured that one extra assist against the powerful Lethbridge Pronghorns would make them believers.
