Minnesota has more Scandinavians than any other place in the world outside of Scandinavia as a matter of fact.

I never did one of these when I signed up a week or so ago. Just said I came from the WMB. So here goes.


Name: Scott

Age: 40

Location: Janesville,IA (Bedroom community of Waterloo/Cedar Falls area for those who know Iowa cities).

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

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

Fav Non Wild Players: Toews and Kane

Fav Wild Prospect: Dumba

Fav Non Wild Prospects: Really don't follow other teams enough to have one.

Fav Movies: Don't have one in particular. Like Action and comedy's

Music: Music taste is all over the board.

Hobbies: Traveling,going to major sporting events (college and pro) and tailgating.

Fav food: None in particular but anything good.

Fav Beer: Cold and even better Free. Not really a beer snob.

Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan: Went to my first NHL game in 02/03 season to just go to a live game. Fell in love with the team and environment. The game was only 1-0 and the Wild lost to Anaheim but loved every minute of it. Was a casual hockey fan (and that's being generous) before that, that day changed that.

How long I have been a Wild fan: see above statement

Origin of screen name: When I signed up for the official board in '02/'03 wanted to signify where I was from. Iowa Fan was already taken (RIP). So Iowa Wild Fan was a good second choice.

Jerseys owned: Couple of pre-Rebock replica jerseys. Never get ones with a name on them because of players switching teams. Plus I haven't able to afford any jerseys for a while period.

Married?: No

Kids: Hell No

Other: Am a huge Iowa Hawkeye fan as those who remember me from the official board and well my Avatar. Have Season Tickets to Iowa Football.

That is what brought me to this forum. I spent a lot of time on GPL and wanted to talk some pro hockey so I tried the Wild board but they're a bunch of pompous a**holes. Let me just say I love the atmosphere here and the civility goes a long way.

I do miss Sierra Nevada Stout from time to time. Can buy a few SN flavors around here, but haven't seen the Stout.

To be completely honest I don't hardly drink anything anymore, and the question asked about what beer I drink, and I normally drink whiskey if I drink at all, which isn't very often anymore.
