Minnesota may be the least wild place in the U.S. by at least one definition of the word. "Let's get ripped and listen to Prairie Home Companion." Hard pass. Supposedly, the team name "Wild" (LOLOLOLOL) refers to the vast natural beauty of the state of Minnesota. I work with a woman who lives in Minnesota, and we both came back from vacation around the same time. She visited Duluth, near Lake Superior. I was backpacking in the Sierras west of Bishop. Both of us sent links to pictures around. She told me, "I thought what I saw was pretty, but then I saw where you were, and man, Minnesota is just not California." Word.
Here's some of the Wild roster and the wildest thing they've ever done.
|Ryan Suter||Signed a gigantic contract for a century then complained about which side of the ice he plays on.|
|Mikko Koivu||Painted a wall non-beige|
|Thomas Vanek||Filed an extension on his estimated taxes
|Mikael Granlund||Put "Pony" on repeat for 10 minutes|
|Jason Pominville||Ate an elbow|
|Jared Spurgeon||Asked for Tabasco sauce once|
|Zach Parise||Parlayed a career in Jersey into a career in St. Paul|
|Nino Niederreiter||Announced to his family that he would not have chosen to remain neutral in WWII, and that Nazis suck|
|Charlie Coyle||Intervened in a mugging while on acid and broke the perp's arm just for the sound of it
Wild @ Sharks
7:30 PM Pacific
Prediction: Charlie Coyle is a maniac.
