I'm positively surprised that there seems to be life again in the Wild boards here. I've been a lurker in Wild's own boards but never bothered to register. Now that Koivu signed his extension and Wild drafted Granlund, I'll probably follow Wild even closer. Already got tickets for the season opener, naturally. Also it seems that Wild fans are generally pretty nice people and knowledgeable hockey fans, which I'm not. I'm an idiot, but I've always liked to surround myself with smart people.
Fav All time Minnesota player: Mikko Koivu
Fav Current Wild: Mikko Koivu
Fav Non Wild Players: Teemu Selšnne, Esa Tikkanen, Pavel Datsuyk, Brian Leetch, Raimo Helminen, Tuukka Rask, most other Finnish NHL players...
Fav Wild Prospect: Mikael Granlund
Fav Non Wild Prospects: Toni Rajala
Fav Movies: I don't know... Honestly, I watch so few movies nowadays. Avatar was pretty good (about the only movie I've seen all year
Music: Anything goes but nothing beats a good old fashioned thrash/death metal mayhem!
Hobbies: Running (going to run my 5th marathon this summer), gym, spending time with my family, video games (mainly NHL10 at the moment, NHL11 soon...
), reading internet hockey forums...
Fav food: Again, anything goes. I like to try different things.
Fav Beer: I don't drink much beer nowadays, mostly mineral water, Coca Cola Zero and coffee...
How long I have been a Wild fan/how I became a fan: I've liked Wild since the beginning because they've been underdogs and belittled by other fans, much like Team Finland always is. A fan? Maybe after Mikko's breakthrough season.
Origin of screen name: I'm pretty bad with screen names. First it was Ipa, which is a nickname of my fave Finnish team. That was stupid, so I decided to change it, but couldn't come up with anything... ... ...and that's basically the story
Jerseys owned: 2 Ilves Raimo Helminen jerseys (my Finnish favourite team and it's most legendary player). Going to get Mikko's Wild jersey for sure...
Married?: Yes. She's a little fat but otherwise passable. Someone said they don't read these board, right?
Kids: Two beautiful daughters and two black cats.
Am I the only one so far thats caught this? lol
Too funny! And for your sake dude, I hope your wife don't see this, lol.
And welcome to the Wild side. Otherwise getting noted as being Team Finland West, lol.
