If you are going to the game tomorrow night to get you busted groin Gaborik doll, make sure you bring some food with you. For the fifth year, the Wild will be accepting donations of non=perishable food itemsto benefit Second Harvest Heartland.
The benefit to you? Well, other than not feeling like a big mean jerk face, you can also get a "Buy one get one free" ticket voucher for future game. That right there should make it worth it. Bring them some mac and cheese, some soup, even some Pop-Tarts. Save the kidney beans. Bring them something you would actually want to eat, will ya?
You're getting a free ticket out of the deal, and you get your fancy pants "I want my money" bobblehead doll, too. Donating some good stuff to people who desperately need it isn't going to kill you. It may even make you feel good about yourself for a few minutes. Make us proud, Hockey Wilderness readers.
