Mike Yeo Looks to Glorify Minnesota's Ice

With the exception of the Minnesota Twins, all of the major sports teams in Minnesota will be/are experiencing the transition that coincides with a new head coach.

The Vikings are 0-2 under new head coach Leslie Frazier. The Minnesota Timberwolves just hired Rick Adelman. And the Minnesota Wild... Mike Yeo. (Even the Gophers have a new boss)

Yeo has a reputation of holding a serious work ethic and pushing his players to have the same. Yeo has said this job with the Wild has been a long time coming, a story more than 20 years in the making. He started taking notes on coaching over two decades ago and has finally landed his goal position: an NHL head coach.

Yeo is looking to bring a strong defensive system to the Wild, applying tough pressure to the puck, forcing their opponents to think quickly - forcing erros. He recognizes there may be no quick fix for a team three years out of the playoffs, but is striving to bring glory back to the ice of Minnesota.

Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance at Xcel Energy Center Tonight

That's right folks, Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance are playing at the Xcel Energy Center tonight and it's going to be a huge deal. I love Blink 182 and they better play All the Small Things and What's My Age Again? because those were my two favorite songs. Blink 182 was my fricken child hood. My Chemical Romance is alright but you should go just to watch Blink. Call Ticket King St Paul if you're still looking for tickets. They have the best prices and provide the best customer service by a long shot.
