Fav Non Wild Prospects:

Too many to list - Last of the Mohicans and Braveheart are likely at the top of my list though.
I listen to more stuff than anyone else I know. Icelandic reggae to Japanese rock to Croatian Hip Hop so....this list would also take way too long.
Administrator of an Online Soccer Forum, moderator of a Boxing Forum, Amateur Boxer (soon to go pro I hope), Strongman, Trivia (I need to find a team here) and a bunch of other stuff.
Guinness. Otherwise too many to list really.
Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan:
I was born a Minnesotan so I had my teams set up. Followed Dallas after the North Stars left then when Minnesota got a team back, immediately went back to my roots.
Though if it happens again in any sport, I'll just quit watching that sport for good. I couldn't take another move.
How long I have been a Wild fan:
Since 2000. Earliest North Stars memories I have are watching on TV in 1987 (though I was taken before then) and going to games in 1988 (that I remember).
Origin of screen name:
Nein. No pets either.
