Wild Sellout Streak Ends (or) It Is All Over!



This shouldn't be a shocker to any regular posters (or even the lurkers - seriously, what's up with you lurking?), but the Wild have finally failed to sell out a game. Yes it's preseason and yes we will probably have to do this one more time in the regular season when the streak officially ends, but congrats to all of us and for supporting the team over the years and continuing to support this glorious game of hockey. Now hopefully this means the team can unretire #1.

I've never seen the place as empty as it was last night. But ya, one way or another the "real" sellout streak is ending this season. Hell, may even be opening night.

Maybe we should refer to the X as the Civic Center now. And the Wild can be the Saints. I saw some reeeeaalll tiny crowds at some of those games back in my youth.

Depending on how far the Twins go, I wouldn't doubt it. I know for the home opener everyone was glued to the TV's in the concession area watching the Twins over the Wild.
