It'd be disrespecting the legendary jersey. But who really gives a **** if the Wild lose? They're just some expansion team.
Maybe the whole thing should be made into a statewide issue. I don't know if it would make a difference, but saying something like "It's a disgrace to Minnesota the way they played tonight" might hold more weight than other criticisms. This might bring about some change. I sure don't feel like waiting until the team is as old as the Canadiens before I see a Stanley Cup in Minnesota.
