    Hockey officailly retuned to it's true home state, Minnesota, when the expansion Wild demolished the team that was originally there, the (North) Stars.

    The slaughter is almost enough to make me forgive them for naming the team "Wild".

    I was watching the highlights and there was a guy in the crowd wearing an old, light green colored Minnisota North Stars jersey.

    I still have mine. I just had to wear it today to work even though nobody here im Milwaukee knows who it is. I have the home white jersey, but now it's kinda yellowish.

    BTW, I have to agree with you on the name "Wild". First off, it's a stupid name, and second, all sports teams should be pluralized. So;

    Rangers-Mark Messier is a Ranger

    Cowboys-Troy Aikmen is a Cowboy (at least 'til he smartens up and retires while he's still able to remember his own name).

    Vikings-Randy Moss is a Viking

    That's the way it should be. What's a guy on the Minnesota Wild supposed to say, "I'm a Wild". That's just wrong. Sorry if that makes no sense, but it does to me.

    Well it's Aikman to be exact brotha. But as much as I do enjoy watching him play football, his health down the road is more important to his wife and daughter, than playing football for us fans. Out.

    Well I messed up another quote. But That last part about Aikman was what I said, not Glenn. Not that anyone gives a hell. LOL. Out.

    Okay, somebody owes me an apology. When I posted that, I put Troy's name into the MSN search engine to make sure I had the name spelled right. When the results came back I just looked at the first one, and it showed it as Aikmen. Obviously I need to do more than 1 second of research in the future.

    Anyway, looks like we're agreeing on this one, it's time for Troy to hang it up. Of course he probably won't, but that's up to him. I see today that he's done for this season, which is pretty much a no-brainer decision.

    Yeah, It's hard to believe they named it the Wild. It sounds like a freakin' MSL team.

    It all started with the Magic.

    On a side note, I wish teams would leave the team name behind whe the leave a city. The Colts name belongs in Baltimore. The Utah Jazz???? C'mon, that name should have stayed in New Orleans when they moved.

    Same goes for the North Stars. Dalls should have thought of their own name and jersey design.
