Mom & Son At The Winter Classic

from Jed Lockett of the Bluefiend Daily Telegraph,

Note: This is the final part of Jed Lockett’s chronicle of a trip with his mother Nora to the National Hockey League Winter Classic, played on Jan. 1 at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.

Wrigley Field is one of those rare sporting venues that has a certain magic about it. You can feel the history, the tradition and the meaning of the place. Just getting there can be a religious experience….

Chicago Blackhawks fans have a tradition that began in 1985 during a playoff series against the Edmonton Oilers. They clap and yell and make as much noise as possible during the national anthem. Two nights earlier in Detroit, a pair of visiting Chicago fans clapped throughout the song and it sounded odd. But when those two were added to an additional 30,000 as well as fireworks, explosions and a flyover from a pair of fighter jets, it made for a breathtaking experience.
