My dream is that the Wild fans get so jaded, they actually join in the "Go Jets Go" sarcastically.


There's nothing I love more than inappropriate or sarcastic applause. That's actually probably why I like the Habs.

Bets on how many times we'll see the wave tonight?

I'm gonna say 4. At the very least, 3.

If I was going to be at the game, I would probably do this.

I don't think doing the wave jinxes your team... It just makes you look Canadian.

Edmonton does the Wave during their game with us. Brodziak scores game winner in shootout.

Minnesota does the wave during the Anaheim game... Ducks tie and then take the lead.

It TOTALLY jinxes you.

Have class again, but I'm gonna keep myself spoiler-free and catch the recording, because it'll be nice to see the crowd at the X get excited about something again. Even if it's just MTS Centre South.
That was... That was great

Which team did everybody bet their vCash on tonight? (between Wild & Jets)

I don't think we'll have a very large edge being at home, so I'd say both teams are on a pretty level playing field.

Edmonton does the wave every game...

Does Columbus do the wave? I think we might have found a correlation!

Know what? I did the wave once... And I liked it.

The wave is the worst thing that ever happened to sport.

It will be interesting to hear cheering while the Wild are on the PP at home.

I think he was just being silly.

But I think we have plenty of reasons to be bitter around here.

Probably will be at this one. Always enjoyed speaking with the multiple Winnipeg people I've ran into over the years at the X. Who knows how it'll be this go around.

I expect pretty much the same Winnipeg fans who were at the Habs game last season so a lot of cheering for the opponent.

No Zids = Winning right?

Heres to cheering for a loss like every year in the second half so we can get a good draft pick

I hope not. By the time there were Jets fans my dog was slowly dying of liver failure.

You don't kick a dying dog.

I went to a twins game early in the year (before the announcement) with a jets jersey on, and i got positive responses, good stadium, and they won too.

Oh, don't get me wrong, the team absolutely sucks, but we as fans should never have to sink so low by doing the wave. /cringe
