Actions of a few not representative of all fans

I took my daughter and my two grandchildren to see our local hockey team, the Wild, play your team on February 27. It was my first time at a Wild hockey game and I enjoyed it very much. All except for the drunks who would not stop swearing and cussing at your players. The goalie (#31) in particular had to suffer most of the insults from the drunks, who I am sure thought that they were just being rowdy sports fans. I am writing this to let you and your team know that most of us are not like those idiots. Your team played hard and well. The goalie did a great job and made some very difficult saves. He certainly did not deserve the insults he received. Good rivalries are the best part of sports, but when rivalries turn into disgusting insulting behavior, then it ruins it for everyone. You have some fine young men on your team. You can be proud of them.
