Sports writer Joe Delession floats Grant Park as the site for the National Hockey League's Winter Classic, an annual regular season game that is played at an outdoor arena on New Year's Day. Grant Park has significant experience hosting large outdoor events and is always interested in new programing and possibilities. "We don't shy away from new ideas if they're feasible and they make sense," said Bob O'Neill, the president of the Grant Park Conservancy, who says that he's always looking for ways to do interesting things in the park, especially in winter. "I think it'd be really cool."
