Back to the question about me being a Wild fan...
My dad played in a beer league and I thought it was fun. So I played alot in those type of beer leagues.

Why the Wild? I liked the color green. Then I started to like the logo. Then I started to like they were underdogs. Then I saw they had Park (Asian pride...). Then I got addicted...

Park was my first favorite player on the Wild. I thought he was the greatest.

I wanna do this too! Strictly speaking I'm more of an NHL fan than fan of any team, but if someone put a gun to my head and asked me about it, I'd be a Wild fan (along with Hurricanes and maybe Ducks...) 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.

Age: 31

Location: Finland

Fav All time Minnesota player: Mikko Koivu

Fav Current Wild: Mikko Koivu

Fav Non Wild Players: Teemu Selänne, 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? Right?!

Kids: Two beautiful daughters and two black cats.

Thanks.

Actually, I don't think my wife would mind even if she reads this. She'd probably just laugh. She's got a great sense of humor, and that's what I love about her (see honey, I CAN SAY NICE THINGS TOO! )

Well, it is Teemu's team... everybody likes him, right?

And I have another good excuse as well; When Mighty Ducks joined the league in '93 my 12-year old little sister thought their logo looked cool (...who am I kidding, so did I ) Anyway, she wrote a letter to the Ducks saying how much she likes the team and so on, and snail-mailed it to the States. It was before internets'n'stuff so things weren't that easy. I thought she was never going to get an answer, but she did. They send him some kinda letter and autographed pictures of superstars like Jarrod Skalde and Todd Ewen. It was probably something any team would have done, but I thought it was a nice gesture and she was really happy. I think she had that picture of Jarrod Skalde on her wall for years. So that's one reason I have a tiny soft spot in my heart for the Ducks.
