The Minnesota Wild recently announced their new ‘This is Our Ice’ initiative that would allow for fans to bring water from all over to be a part of the ice sheet at Xcel Energy Center. Turns out there’s a problem with some of the water in my opinion.
This is #OurIce.

Pretty cool thing the Wild are doing, right? Let’s get all this water from all over the land of 10,000 lakes and make it a part of our identity. I mean our state loves to associate ourselves with our teams. If someone grows up in Minnesota and plays a pro sport, every rumor involving them has some link back to Minnesota, I assume this happens in most other states, but not to the extent that we take it. “One of us” is a phrase that’s used frequently here.
But then towards the end of the video from the event, they showed all the places where the water was coming from. I started seeing the names of towns and cities from different states on there.
I spy with my little eye some Wisconsin towns in there. This is where I draw the line. Am I supposed to like the fact that there’s Sconnie water in the X? When Charlie Coyle takes a breakout pass from Ryan Suter this season, there is a little part of fucking Rice Lake, Wisconsin in that sheet of ice.
