    I haven't. I should check it out when it comes to streaming services. I hardly go to movie theaters because its tickets are pretty expensive. I also like Inception and Batman trilogy (Although the third one was disappointment).

    Welcome! I think you're the first Australian Wild fan around here! That Koivu 100th game was pretty epic. Couldn't have been written any better if someone tried...

    Hey thanks! Happy to be here. Long-time lurker; thought I’d join now that I am extremely excited about our organizational direction.

    I love the idea of tearing down an old and average team with the intent of trying to build top-tier talent through the farm system over time. It’s a bit scary because nothing is guaranteed to work. That said, what we were doing before wasn’t working, and we’ve been in the rut of constancy for a LONG time.

    This is a great community, and I’ve always come here for info on prospects in particular.

    Lol on Prosser. Well, to be completely honest, I don’t own many jerseys because of the expense involved. I’m an unfortunate combination of poor and cheap. But I saw a game worn Prosser jersey for $100...and it was too good to pass up. I guess nobody else wanted it! ; )

    Welcome!

    However, I am already the long term incumbent Hamm's drinker on the boards so uh this is a bit awkward.

    Well after living in Montana, and South Dakota over the last few years. I was offered a job back in MN and decided to take it. As much as some things about this state drive me nuts, I still love it and it will always be home. Glad to be back!
