it reminds me of bigfoot. Does Minny really wanted to be known as the city with bigfoot?

We stole all of North Dakota's.

I hate the name "Wild." It was one of those silly-assed "let the fans name the team so they feel a sense of ownership and we'll sell a lot of tickets" contests. Stupid idea, stupid result. Never learned to like it.

Well, at least I knew nobody in Minnesota would be stupid enough to pick such an idiotic name as that for a hockey team, but yeah - it could have been a lot worse.
