It's hard to believe, but the "Mutual of Omaha: Battles on Ice" outdoor game between the Lincoln Stars and the Omaha Lancers is only one month away. One month!
When: Saturday, February 9th, 2013. Stars vs. Lancers will start at 12:35pm CST. UND vs. UNO will begin after the USHL game.
Where: TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, NE (artist's rendering of what TD Ameritrade Park will look like is pictured on the left)
How much: Prices start at $30 per ticket which will get you into both games (Stars vs. Lancers and UND vs. UNO). Tickets went on sale last October, but there are still seats available. Click here for more info.

Stating the obvious here, but I am really looking forward to this game. My tickets are in the first row of Section 221, if I recall correctly. Should be a good view of the ice to take some pictures, and maybe even some video. I'm hoping the weather cooperates and it isn't too crappy. Overcast, with temps in the 30's (no wind) would be perfect. I'd prefer it not to be sunny to cut down on the glare.
I'd love to hear from all of you that plan on going to this event! Please leave a comment below. It would be nice if all of the Stars fans that plan on going could meet in one place to tailgate before and maybe after the game. That is if tailgating is allowed.
