Hey guys, first post. I've lurked for quite a while, but I guess it's finally time to take the jump and start posting. Lived in the Twin Cities all my life, go to school upstate, and obviously I'm going crazy today because I love Minnesota hockey.

Cheers.

I'm just sad I have to wait around another 89ish days to get my own snazzy Church of Yeo avatar. How will people know I believe if I don't have one?

I'm usually (with the recent moves I likely won't miss any) at the home games. During the away games I'm almost always at home or at a friend's if the gal abides. Unless it's a West coast (i.e. divisional ) game, then I'm in bed as I have to be up early.

I wouldn't be opposed to having a smaller HF get-together to catch an away game, though.

Figured I should update mine since it was from so long ago...

Name: Bryan

Age: 34

Location: Farmington, MN

Fav All time Minnesota player (Wild or North Stars): Neal Broten

Fav Current Wild: Mikael Granlund, Mikko Koivu, Zach Parise, and Ryan Suter

Fav Non Wild Players: Ovie, Malkin, Burns, and Patrick Kane.

Fav Wild Prospect: Granlund again - but since he's now on the team, I'll also say Dumba.

Fav Non Wild Prospects: Any NHL prospect playing for the Gophers.

Fav Movies: Star Wars stands above all... but since I absolutely love movies in general, I'll list Inception, The Dark Knight, Silence of the Lambs, Sin City, Memento, The Machinist, The Usual suspects, Goodfellas, Donnie Brasco, 300, Resevoir Dogs, Clerks, etc, etc, etc... (it really could go on and on and on!)

Music: Metallica, Tool, No Doubt, Beastie Boys (RIP MCA!), Flyleaf, Sevendust...

Hobbies: Sports, Video gaming, rollerblading, skiiing (downhill).

Fav food: Chicken... preferably fried.

Fav Beer: Leinie's Honey Weiss

Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan: Well, I'm a hockey fan through and through, so when the Wild were announced as an expansion franchise I was instantly a fan... but the first Wild game I went to (intentionally) was Dec 17th, 2000 vs the Stars. Had to be there to truly open the new era against the team that ripped out my heart when they had moved 7yrs earlier! The Wild TROUNCED the Stars 6-0!!!!!

How long I have been a Wild fan: Since the Wild were announced as an expansion franchise.

Origin of screen name: Used it in early video game RPG's. Since I am already a fan of Raptors (birds of prey) and they all have talons... it seemed to fit the mid-evil fantasy realm. Yeah, I know... I can be a nerd.

Jerseys owned: All authentics... White Neal Broten #7 North Stars, White Marian Gaborik #10 Wild, Green Pascal Dupuis #11 Wild, Red Brent Burns #8 Wild, Green Dwayne Roloson #30 Western All-Star, White Mark Parrish #21 Wild, Red Brian Rolston #12 Wild, Green Mikko Koivu #9 Wild... all before the crappy RBK Edge jersey was created. Have not gone to the darkside in buying a lame RBK Edge jersey yet! (I must admit, it's getting difficult to stand on that principle though with the HUGE influx of talent right now!)

Married?: No

Kids: No kids, but I do have a Blue Quaker Parrot named Mikko (yes, named after Koivu!) and have 2 cats. The two cats are named Kitty and Punk'in. Punk'in is also nick-named demon cat!
