Just wondering for those of you Manitobans who made it down did enjoy your trip to the Cities for the big Wild v. Jets game?

I have cousins in Winnipeg area and I've been there before and I love the country in general.

BTW the game was great. Looking forward to a long and historic rivalry for many decades to come and I hope to get back up to Manitoba in the near future.

Govie from St. Paul.

Honestly man, I'd say more than 50% of those "manitobians" were actually from Thunder Bay, Ontario. When a Canadian team plays in Minnesota, we have bus loads of people that go down there from Thunder Bay, not including the people that go in their own vehicle.

When Toronto or Montreal go there, almost everyone is from Thunder Bay.

Well it was a Jets game, so it was a question more geared toward them. I am aware that people from Ontario go as well.

No. Watched it on TV. Haven't heard anything about messing up the anthem but everyone I've talked to on my hockey forum who came down seems to love the Twin Cities in general. Lots of Vikings and Twins fans up there I guess.
