It’s finally here. The day we’ve all been waiting for. The day we’ve stockpiled Mich Golden for. If you don’t know, buckle up, because it’s GAME DAY. Tonight the New York Rangers arrive from the rotting apple city of NYC as they face off against our Minnesota Wild for what will be, in my opinion, an opening night we’ll never forget.154 days have passed since the Wild were escorted out of the playoffs, 111 days since the team parted ways with forward Kevin “Fifi” Fiala, and 8 hours since my last panic attack (who’s counting…). But hey, all is good because it’s GAME DAY! So, shotgun your morning beer and get goin’!
Game 1 Preview
Coming off a 3-1 victory against the Tampa Bay Thunderbolts, the New York Rangers enter St. Paul on an impressive one game winning streak where they look to extend to TWO games (trying to speak like the impressive ESPN NHL panel). This, my friends, will not happen. Instead, the Minnesota Wild that apparently lacks star power (sup Brian Boucher) will hit the ice with momentum and come out with a 5-3 victory.I’m not one to name drop so I won’t, but my childhood friend Nick asked me a few weeks back about my projection for the upcoming season.
Instead of sitting and pondering, it came to me in a flash. An opening night victory, a historic rookie season for Marco Rossi, an MVP caliber year for Kirill, and a record year profit-wise for Michelob Golden Light. Oh! And the Wild will make it past the first round. This isn’t a projection though, this is straight up facts. Remember, confidence is the key to success and we all want Bossman to shave his head. Confused about the last part? Check it out below!Tonight 19,000+ fans will welcome the Minnesota hockey team to the ice. The Xcel Energy Center will have fathers and sons cheering to the goal horn. The group of college friends up in the nosebleeds that made their presence known at center ice. A family of four that took the six-hour trip from the tall pines of hockeytown USA, Warroad. Finally, you can bet on seeing the ever popular “Let’s Get Sexy” chant. Tonight will be an opening night we’ll never forget. Unless of course you drink too much which is always a possibility.
Small town America faces off against the Minnesota Wild tonight. Friends, IT’S GAME DAY!
Everyone Deserves a Second Chance
If you can’t make opening night work out, don’t worry. The Wild have agreed to a partnership with us at 10k to provide you a perfect opportunity that you won’t get anywhere else. For a little as $39 you can get a ticket to the game on Oct 17th against the Colorado Avalanche. As good as that is by itself, you also get early access to the rink. Oh, there’s more too. On top of all of that, you’ll get the opportunity to meet Wild GM, Bill Guerin for an autograph/picture as well as listen to his speech about this year’s team. Sounds pretty good, right?
