"Don't miss it, don't even be late..." (H)

...for the Minnesota Wild's new 3rd jersey unveiling on Sunday, August 30 at 12:30 PM, at the Wild's Minnesota State Fair booth, between Carnes and Dan Patch on Underwood (the former Modern Living building site) on the State Fairgrounds in Falcon Heights.

The Wild have convinced clothes horse, budding model (and NHL heavyweight champ) Derek Boogaard to model the new, throwback-style third jersey at the team's new location, moving their operations into the shared building (with the Vikings, Swarm, Timberwolves) from their old digs at the top end of the Grandstand ramp.

Sadly, the team's mascot, "Nordy" will also be there, primarily to scare the little kids (not; but at the State Fair, you never know) and provide a moving obstacle for those wishing to order jerseys after Boogaard debuts them (that part is indeed true).

The team's website will have further details of player appearances, and when Nordy is scheduled (so you can avoid the mascot, like I prefer to do).
