If you are a Minnesota Wild fan, you should naturally wear a Minnesota Wild jersey. Wear the green one, wear the away one — heck, wear the Christmas tree one. It’s your team, and you should feel free to wear a Zach Parise-Mikko Koivu-Ryan Suter sweater with pride.

If you don’t have a jersey, wear a t-shirt, sweatshirt or paint on your face. You’re there to support your team.

I assure you, I wear my Avalanche gear with pride everywhere I go. I’m going to be wearing my (almost) 20-year-old Patrick Roy jersey, homemade Avs earrings, my brand new Avalanche headband, my ancient Avs leather and a fanicure. If I were attending a game the Avalanche were playing in Xcel Energy Center, I would wear all the same gear.

Wearing a Matt Cooke sweater might be a bit awkward, but my understanding is he doesn’t have a ton of fans, and anyway, he’s not a Wild anymore.
