ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – For the Minnesota Wild faithful, the Hockey Lodge is where fans like Eric Anderson find their team spirit.

“We’ve had tickets since 2001, their first season, so you can’t have enough wild stuff,” Anderson said.

As he browses the jerseys, sweatshirts and other Wild gear, he’s preparing for a dream shopping spree.

“Perfect time of the year,” he said. “Christmas gifts, you know, you can’t have too much stuff.”

He’ll get access to the entire store, free of charge. A one person sale only offered for 30 seconds.

With just half a minute, Eric wastes no time. Two seconds in, and he already had his putters for the next golf season. Sweatshirts, jackets and pants soon followed. Staff were nearby to help speed up the process.

As time ticked away there was no method, only a frantic grab at all things Wild. Barely able to make it out of one aisle, yet still able to fill an entire cart.

Eric scored 52 different Wild items, totally $4,400. However, he wasn’t able to get the two things his mom and girlfriend asked for: Wild sweatshirts.

He says he didn’t want to waste those precious seconds running across the store.
