Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan: Well, I'm a hockey fan through and through, so when the Wild were announced as an expansion franchise I was instantly a fan... but the first Wild game I went to (intentionally) was Dec 17th, 2000 vs the Stars. Had to be there to truly open the new era against the team that ripped out my heart when they had moved 7yrs earlier! The Wild TROUNCED the Stars 6-0!!!!!
How long I have been a Wild fan: Since the Wild were announced as an expansion franchise.
Origin of screen name: Used it in early video game RPG's. Since I am already a fan of Raptors (birds of prey) and they all have talons... it seemed to fit the mid-evil fantasy realm. Yeah, I know... I can be a nerd.
Jerseys owned: All authentics... White Neal Broten #7 North Stars, White Marian Gaborik #10 Wild, Green Pascal Dupuis #11 Wild, Red Brent Burns #8 Wild, Green Dwayne Roloson #30 Western All-Star, White Mark Parrish #21 Wild, Red Brian Rolston #12 Wild, Green Mikko Koivu #9 Wild... all before the crappy RBK Edge jersey was created. Have not and will not buy one of those.
Kids: No kids, but I do have an Australian Terrier dog, and have 2 cats. One of the cats I took in because they couldn't find her a home. The poor kitten was the runt of her litter.
