That would be a great idea. Have the winter classic in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Everyone could bring their RVs and camp out around the rink. It would combine hockey and NASCAR. That would guarantee its success.

Does Walmart have a field?

It could have been a KMart parking lot. Instead of a red light going off for every goal, it would be a blue light. For the minimum 3 goals the Wild would give up, Parise, Suter and Backstrom can take turn's saying, "I just shipped my pants!"

Best idea ive heard yet for a winter classic. They can play for the NW angle which resides in Manitoba, but claimed as Minnesota.

Actually we pronounce minnesota with a long o and a d (minne-sooda) and we dont pronounce about like the canadiens do (aboot). youre spot on about the hawkey and hawtdish though.
