Minnesota, as far as I know, is very similar to Finland.

There are more Scandinavians here than any other place outside of Scandinavia). Fins are repped a lot in Northern Minnesota.

The worst thing about the landscape is we have no mountains.

I have done research on projects about Scandies in early Minnesota though and indeed many wrote home that the land was like the "Motherland" which led to further migration.

Politics, wars, arrogant people, etc...

Was Eric allowed to go to shower with the rest of that team?

I dunno. Your posts are coming off kind of bi-polar now. Do you exempt Minnesota from this view you have of America, and if so, why did you ask whether Haula was accepted or not? (I know you said in jest, but....) Why would you want to live here if we fit your above-posted perception?

Inquiring minds here I'm sure would like to know.

In my POV Minnesota is in a lot of ways different than the rest of the country. Politically we are a "purple" state (combine red and blue, you get purple). Liberal governor, conservative House and Senate; extremely liberal U.S. Senators in Franken and Klobuchar; extremely conservative Representative in Bachmann. We voted in a very rare Independent in Ventura in '98. We were one of only two states to vote against Reagan twice (I know Mondale was part of that rarity, yes). We also had more delegates go to Paul this year than anyone else for the conservative ticket. (Paul is about as rare a politician you will find and he did very well here back in '08 as well.)

But, I digress, and I don't know if political talk is allowed here or not so I won't go into what I think and/or stand for.

I just wondered how someone who likes/respects our club so much and our state equally would have such a perception regarding other things. Sorry, I minored in political science and history so it kind of fascinates me how/why the outside world views the country and how they come to the (sometimes) incorrect perceptions.

Hobbies: If I'm not working, I'm either at the X watching hockey, watching it on TV and/or writing about it. No time for much else.

Fav Beer: Not a big beer drinker. I like vodka sometimes though, which is almost the same thing, in that it's alcohol.

Fav Wild moment: Seeing the crazy amount of people that showed up for team scrimmages/prospect scrimmages this year

How I became a fan: It's very complicated. I've always watched the Wild. I didn't become a huge fan until Dec of last year (everyone jumps off the ship, I jump on). I made up for the fact that I missed a lot of time time as a fan by throwing myself into learning everything I possibly could. Covered the Aeros during the lockout and am actually a member of their press corps, so yay me.
