Good for the Florida State alum from Dallas, Texas for embracing the Minnesota sports culture and supporting his city's teams. Minnesota sports fans have to appreciate seeing that sort of thing.

The Wild are currently doing battle with the always mighty Anaheim Ducks. They trail 1-0 after 20 minutes of hockey. It is the Wild's first game since last Saturday when they lost to the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 in overtime. Their next game after tonight's is on Saturday vs. the Detroit Red Wings.
