Is #HockeyAtBusch possible?

#HockeyAtBusch, a year-old Twitter hashtag, gained traction again Monday night, trending in St. Louis. Fans tweeting the hashtag want just that: An outdoor St. Louis Blues hockey game at Busch Stadium.

It’s not unimaginable: In the past year, Busch has staged international soccer, college football and, of course, baseball.

Outdoor hockey games, including those at baseball stadiums, are not new either. The National Hockey League’s 2014 “stadium series” included games at Yankee Stadium and Dodger Stadium in January.

The St. Louis Blues have expressed interest in hosting the Winter Classic, which is traditionally played outdoors on New Year’s Day. The venue for the 2015 game has not been announced, but St. Louis is unlikely since the Washington Capitals are the home team.

The Blues have not yet played an outdoor game.

St. Louis Blues right winger T.J. Oshie really wants to be on the cover of “NHL 15″ video game. Failing that, he’s trying his hand at basketball, baseball and football. The St. Louis Blues put together a series of videos to help Oshie’s efforts.

I think he nailed that backup quarterback position.
