The losing goal of course was vintage Dubie-duh-oh! Way to go NTG.

I'll be interested to hear if Dallas fans liked SMF's North Stars jersey.

Yup, it really sucks when he was playing very well and robbed them on a few and then to lose on that one. All you can do is shake your head.
I was jumping back and forth between the Wild and Gophers games and the Wild sucked less so I watched most of this one.....our local hockey sucks right now.

I don't see SMF.


I did see a man wearing a North Star jersey with great seats two rows up from the ice in a corner on the side where the Dallas goalie was in the net for the first and third periods. But there was never a close up look, and I'm not totally sure I'd recognize Scott if I saw him anyway.

But I doubted it was him because that guy just sat there lifeless for the entire game (at least whenever the camera was aimed that way). I can't imagine Scott being that passive.

I'm looking forward to his report of the night, although we all know that it had an unhappy ending.

Actually I think that was him.

I can attest to the truth of that statement.

Awesome quick trip to Big D.
Weather was outstanding. Left -30 and walked around for three days in 70 above. Beautiful weather. We got lucky.
Best Wild trip yet in many areas ... best arena, best seats, easiest to get to things, everything within walking distance, helpful people, decent prices.
Worst effort by the Wild probably, but it was kinda expected.
Drank a LOT, had a lot of fun. Right back at work this morning, that's how we roll. Drive home from the Cities late last night was crappy, as usual.
All in all, losing the game was the only bummer.
American Airlines Arena is beautiful. Tons of room, tons of great sites, good amenities, nice people.
Tons of Wild-wearing fans. Tons of North Star-wearing fans. but by far the most passive fan base of anywhere we've been.
Bartenders 4-5 blocks from the rink had no idea how to get there. NOT joking. When we go to other cities for a game, people instantly know what you're there for and talk to you about it.
In Dallas, they just go "oh, that's nice" and then admit "I really don't know much about that place or that team"
Its like its on a tiny island. So that part was strange. I tried to stir up some crap, and no one took any bait. Matt would hate it there.
The fan base for them is passive and wide-eyed. They get all loud when the video board says GET LOUD. They sing and dance when their team scores. But most have no idea how many points a goal is worth.
The fan base with Wild and North Star gear on was quiet and braindead all night, probably because of the way the boys played. Thanks, Dubnyk. He was good, and kinda kept us in iut, right up until the time he didn't.
He's simply an irritating goalie. Good, until he's not. The squeaker he let thru was sad, probably the weakest shot of the night. And it just had to be to that puke Seguin.
The stands are full of gorgeous gals, EVERY one has a Seguin jersey because I guess he's a cutie, I was told. Gag me. And of course we had to make sure he got two, and looked even more manly to them.
I did like some things I saw in the Wild. Sad to know that Hunt immediately can become your 2nd best puck moving D man in a week.
The new guys played hard, and Greenway is the one constant threat for us. Everyone else just gets nothing done. Parise flies around and bothers like a gnat, but eventually just gets swatted away.
Anyway, a really nice weekend getaway.
Loved the JFK Tributes at the Depository, got pretty dusty in there for quite awhile. Amazing to see it pretty much as it was. you can just feel history there. Sad, sad, sad history. If ever we needed a man .......
Restaurants and bars were all pleasant surprises. Some felt like New Orleans, some felt like Mexico, some felt like Minnesota. Great food, great drinks, nice people.
We did high-end, we did low-end, we did dive bars, we tried em all, and none disappointed. Lucked out with a van driver for the ride from the airport, he showed us around like a tour guide, and that really helped.
Excited for next year. We're thinking Denver or San Jose, then for sure Seattle in a couple years.
I'll think of more stuff this week, thanks for the good thoughts. It was fun as hell.

I'm glad to know you're back. Now I can go back to hoping a meteor hits the city of Dallas.

Oh, it absolutely makes a difference. If you get taken out by a meteor, I'm stuck with Matt .

The Wild recalled Kunin and Rau. Prosser and Brown sent to Iowa.

No one claimed Prosser or Brown? Both on one ways so they have to go thru waivers. Surprised Rau is called up before Ek.

Yes, they both cleared waivers. I don't think the Wild want Ek up here if he is only going to play on the 4th line. Rau is better suited to that role.

Thanks for the summary (see what I did there peeps? Didn't feel the need to quote the whole dang thing).

So WAS that you in the second row in the corner? Whoever was wearing that North Star jersey got a lot of tv time because of the location.

BTW that snarky comment only came because I was just in the Viking thread and saw a couple of those nested quotes that went on for 24 inches scrolling, and were completely unnecessary.

We all have our little pet peeves.

It's cute how you think he was sober enough to remember where he sat.
