Erica Skuta is a Minnesota Wild fan living in New Zealand, which is pretty awesome because they have several different kinds of indigenous penguins there.
She was back in Minnesota this weekend, where she married fellow Wild fan Lewis Blake and attended the Wild’s game against the Dallas Stars on Saturday night as their “wedding finale.” In the process, she gave the hockey world an image that will be replayed in Jumbotron fan montages ‘till death do us part.
That’s Erica, munching on a burger while sitting in the arena seats in her wedding dress.
And in one of his first acts of husbandly gallantry, that’s Lewis wiping some burger grease and/or condiment off his bride’s chin before it plummeted down to her dress. Nice work, sir. Better than a jacket over a puddle on a rainy street.
Alas, the Minnesota Wild blew a lead and settled for a consolation point against the Dallas Stars in an overtime loss. Which is a terrible wedding present. We're talking "buying just an oven mitt off the registry" bad.
We raise a large arena burger in your honor, you lovely Kiwis.
