Haha how many "Winny" threads did we have?

For the record I don't care and say "Minny" all the time.

Some people it drives them nuts some people like me don't care at all.

It's alright. I think most overreact trying to be funny in a kid-like "nuh uh!" way.

I think it's funny to see it coming from a Winnipeg fan with the obvious "Winny" comparison. But yeah, don't worry about it, we knee jerk react to it because of the prevalence but aren't really that horribly offended.

I was really banking on heading to Min....neapolis/St.Paul to catch them play the Jets. Heard it was a great atmosphere last time. Pretty disapointing. Oh well Vikings game it is.

Just because the Jets aren't playing doesn't mean you have to go and punish yourself like that.

The thign that caught my eye is that all the good teams come in a few weeks time and then the bad teams.. and it keeps going like that.

I just started watching/following the NFL about five years ago and picked the crappiest team to back as not to bandwagon....So I would really like to watch the Lions play live and the Vikings are the closest competition. How is the atmosphere at the games btw? - sorry for the Off topic.

The atmosphere is pretty good. I'd take an NHL game any day of the week, though. I don't like going to football games, because its hard to see and television gives the best view most times.

So would I. Fact of the matter is that tickets are ridiculously hard to come by here. I have two cousins that have season tickets and I got to attend a few last year but not the teams I would of liked to of seen. I just feel that a friendly rivalry between the Wild and the Jets would of been great to have and I had a few friends that went down there last season and said it was a great experience from the time before the game to the wee hours of the morning.

Anyway thanks for the vikings info. Have a good draft.

There is no reason to torture yourself like that. Just go to a Wild game when an opponent that actually gets the team and fans riled up comes to town.

Like St. Louis, or Dallas.

That was kind of a theme last season for us... after getting sick of everyone saying "Minny" so often, everyone here just started coming up with stuff for every opponent... be in Winny for the Jets, Vanny for the Canucks, Los Anny for the Kings etc.
