Wild Owner: Green Jersey Coming

Minnesota Wild fans longing for the return of the green jersey may have to wait only until next season. At a barbecue event for season ticket holders last week, I believe, owner Craig Leipold said the team was working on a green third jersey to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

You can listen to his comments in full via the latest PONDcast on the Wild's official web site. (If you're reading this in the future, it's #883.)

That reminds me. A couple of months ago, the Wild held a fan appreciation event where staffers were walking around with concept jerseys trying to get a feel for what folks would like from an alternate. Perhaps that had something to do with this. You can read more about it in the original post.

Thanks to Eric for the heads-up on this!

Knowing Leopold, he'll charge 150% more than a normal jersey and then get mad when people wont buy it.

Well, if nobody buys it, he'll have to lower the price, won't he? ;-)

I was a fan of the green jerseys. I always consider them a "green" team (no pun intended; they are the "Wild"), despite the fact that they wear predominantly-red jerseys.

to Daniel:
No, he'll just threaten to sell the team and move.
