Another Outdoor Game in Omaha?

Add plans for one more outdoor hockey game next year into the mix.

Black & Blue, the excellent unofficial Lincoln Stars blog is reporting that an outdoor double-header featuring the Lincoln Stars and Omaha Lancers, followed by the University of Nebraska-Omaha and North Dakota will take place next February at Omaha's new TD Ameritrade Park, which will be the new home of the College World Series of baseball.

Of all the proposed outdoor games, I think I might like this one the best. The new park has a manageable size, making a sellout almost guaranteed given the teams playing. There's a pretty good natural rivalry being built between UNO and UND, and an already great rivalry between the Stars and Lancers. It may not have the broad appeal of a big name stadium, but would be a fantastic, entertaining event for fans of those teams.
