FORD ICE CENTER BELLEVUE TO HOST INAUGURAL COUNTRY CLASSIC WOMEN’S DIVISION I COLLEGE HOCKEY TOURNAMENT

Nashville, Tenn. (November 21, 2019) – Just over a month after its grand opening, Ford Ice Center Bellevue will host the first-ever Country Classic Women’s Division I College Hockey Tournament from Nov. 29-30. The tournament will feature four of the nation’s top Division I women’s programs – the Boston College Eagles, Harvard Crimson, University of Minnesota Golden Gophers and Wisconsin Badgers.

“We’re thrilled to host four of the Top 10 collegiate women’s hockey programs in the country and some of the best female hockey players in the world in Bellevue over Thanksgiving weekend,” Vice President and Ford Ice Centers General Manager Danny Butler said. “The Country Classic will offer yet another amazing opportunity for aspiring hockey players, and especially young girls, to watch and learn from these athletes who compete at an extremely high level. After hosting the record-breaking NWHL All-Star Weekend in February, we’re looking forward to doing our part to grow the game in Tennessee with this event.”

In the two days following Thanksgiving, the Country Classic will provide an exciting and budget-friendly activity for families and hockey fans in the Nashville area. To gain access to each of the tournament’s four games, fans can purchase a full-weekend pass for $50, but for those who aren’t able to attend every matchup, $15 single-game passes are also available.

B6B: TV REVIEW: Ozark – Season 3, Eps 9-10

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 27, 2020) EPISODE 9: FIRE PINK EPISODE 10: ALL IN “Today, today is our beginning.” And that’s how the third season of Ozark comes to a close, with not one, not two, but three bangs. The first effectively castrates (and then some) Frank Cosgrove Jr., the second takes out…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 27, 2020) One major point I forgot to cover in the previous review was Omar Navarro’s call to Wendy, where he pretty much reminded her who was in charge. We glossed over it, but didn’t speak about it nearly enough. Again, Wendy Byrde was acting like she was Rodion…

B6B: TV REVIEW: Ozark – Season 3, Eps 1-2

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 27, 2020) EPISODE 1: WARTIME EPISODE 2: CIVIL UNION Ozark never wastes much time, as each lengthy episode continually barrages you with content. After each hour, you feel like you’ve watched a full season. That’s both a blessing and a curse, because certainly it earns its ten episode length,…

GOODMAN “Or.” That word proved to be of supreme importance in the last two episodes of Better Call Saul, as it necessitates and instigates the concept of a CHOICE. Ultimately, that’s what several characters on this show are…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 15, 2020) I know it’s been well over a year since Season 2, but I hope I’m not the only one that finished up a tension-filled, but cumbersome and confusing premiere wondering exactly what show I just watched. I wasn’t un-entertained, I was just left baffled. The series I…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 9, 2020) EPISODE 4: NAMASTE This was a very, very heavy Saul and Kim episode, which with just a little Hank and Steve hijinks and a pretty frightening few minutes of Gus waiting for that call…made it maybe my favorite of the new season. Written and directed by Gordon…
