Watch Both Badger Hockey Games This Weekend On-Air and Online

It’s a big weekend for hockey in the state of Wisconsin as the Wisconsin Men’s Hockey team challenges the nationally number two-ranked Boston University Terriers at the Kohl Center Friday and Saturday nights at 7.

Sure, the best place to watch the game is at the arena, but if you don’t have tickets or are just planning to stay home out of the cold, WPT has you covered!

You can watch both games on Wisconsin Public Television’s The Wisconsin Channel (WPT-2 over the air or check your local cable listings) or streaming live online at this link.

Sheepshead: A Wisconsin Family Tradition

Sheepshead. If you are from – or have spent time in – Wisconsin, you’ve likely stumbled upon this card game in a local tavern or around a family dining room table. Today’s special animated Wisconsin Life sneak peek takes us inside this classic Wisconsin tradition to uncover the lifelong lessons and memories that can come from a simple hand of cards. Kudos to Michael Williams for the animation of this story that originally appeared on Wisconsin Public Radio.

Discover more Wisconsin Life here tomorrow and on-air Monday nights in February on Wisconsin Public Television!
