You and a friend could get into this building for free tonight.
The Minnesota Wild's last preseason game is tonight against the Edmonton Oilers. If you've got at least $70 bucks to throw down, you could buy a couple of tickets.

Or you could get them for free from City Pages! We're giving away two pairs of free tickets to tonight's game to whichever readers can convince us they need them the most.

So far, the preseason's been pretty exciting, with a lot of goals scored by and against the Wild. If you want to get one last absolutely free preview of Mikko Koivu, Dany Heatley, and Devin Setoguchi before the regular season kicks off, you've come to the right place.

Here's how it works.

1) Sign in to comment below using a working e-mail address so we can contact the winners.

2) Leave a witty, interesting, or otherwise compelling comment that convinces us you're the most deserving recipient of these tickets.

My son and his girlfriend are arriving today from Ohio.  He is a huge MN sports fan and has been embarrassed by the Vikings all season.  I would love for him to be able to show his girlfriend that we really do have AWESOME sports teams in Minnesota.

Annie and I have worked 12 hours a day for the last 4 months, trying to keep our business open. Unfortunately, we have to close and are completely stressed out and now are selling off everything just to make sure that everything is paid off. Taking a break for all the worries of bills  and be able to take my wife out for a couple of hours just to see our favorite team play would be a godsend... just say'n.

I would like to add to my husbands post about the International Student. He is a senior in high school from China and he believes woman are a tool for men. He thinks if he buys a woman something they owe him. He also argues, lies and cheats at school. We have asked the program to remove him from our home because of all the frustration he is causing. We are waiting for them to proccess him out. That is why we could really use these Wild tickets.

THINGS THAT ARE DESERVING OF HOCKEY TICKETS:Paying money for hockey tickets.BUT HERE ARE REASONS YOU SHOULD GIVE ME FREE HOCKEY TICKETS:1. The last MN sporting event I went to live was the Vikings-Lions game. I deserve many things for sitting/screaming through that.2. I promise to drink too much and yell inappropriate things at Canadians.  Even if you don't send me to the game.

I deserve the tickects because my doctor said that I am having serious life-threating hockey withdrawls.  You will save my life by giving me these tickets!!  Go Wild!!!

My wife and I have been hosting an International High School student from China for the last 1½ months and we feel the crashing and hitting of a hockey game would help relieve our stress level. There would be no communication gap at a Wild game.

The last Wild game I attempted to go to I couldn't get in because the tickets I bought were fake. This was on my birthday too so it kind of ruined the day but it's my dad's birthday today & and I would like to take him as a gift. Thanks CP!

Upon the painted glacierBlack-booted chieftainsAnd their fleet-footed hordesCircle and dive, plow and plunder'Neath the enrapt gazeOf the howling assemblage.

In wide, luxuriant hallsThe hale gentryClad in fine-knitted apparelThe hue of winter pinesDrink merrily to the fortunesOf their hockey heroes.

Outside the arena wallsThe peasant ambles weaklywith his back to the waning sunand searches his tattered garbfor his last crumbs of currency,enough coin for a Peeber at Eagle Street.

Maybe they have a TV with the game on.

I am most deserving because I've lived in Minnesota for six years, but have never seen a wild game or that many attractive men in one place! I'd also be willing to share my "friend" ticket with any other interesting and entertaining person that has a compelling reason to go!

Well, it's not as if I haven't been wishing for a chance to spend time with a guy I met two years ago, an ex-pro hockey player for the Montreal Canadiens. We live 2 hours apart and he is busy raising two hockey boys; we don't get a lot of time together as much as we try.  He teases me that I know nothing about hockey as a native Minnesota but I was raised by a basketball coach and haven't a clue about hockey!  I need to learn more about the game and see my guy as it has been more than a few months; kill two birds w/one stone.  This would send me straight to heaven, thanks.

One time, I was on old dudes gone wild and that was the wildest thing I've ever done, until I won tickets to the Wild game tonight.

I deserve to win because I just got done with strep throat, as did my wife.  She's a teacher so she brings all of the germs home.  We both literally haven't left the house in the last couple of days.Oh, and I saved a baby from a burning house on my way to work this morning.  Ok, I made that part up to make my story sound much cooler so I can win the tickets!Go Wild!!!

I deserve to go because I am a rabid fan.  Not just of the Wild, but of hockey in general.  I cried when the North Stars were taken away from me as a 13 year old girl.  I mourned the season of the lockout.  I want to see the magic of the 2 (former) Sharks and a Finn in person.  Plus, I know that there's hockey in Ohio (Columbus Blue Jackets, anyone? We've only faced them twice this preseason).  Sorry, Trevor L.

No heartwarming story here.  Skol Wild (if that even makes sense haha)! Hopefully the Wild can save Minnesota's streak of terrible teams this season.

Why am I stoked for this season?It's not just because I'm from Minnesota and I love hockey, but as an Asian-American, I haven't been this jacked for a season of Minnesota Wild hockey since Richard Park aka Beast from the East was playing here a decade ago Now we got Setoguchi, who according to my research, is a fourth-generation Japanese-Canadian.Volia! It's like 2001 all over again - now a lowly Asian college kid who couldn't even make his high school's math team much less the hockey squad or any varsity sports team that required physical activity is seeing a fellow brother checking Oilers into the glass.And give me a break - Yao Ming retired.

30 years old and just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday... I wish I could upload a picture because I look like Quagmire. It's Friday night and I need something to go do to get my mind off the pain!

I just got back from my doctor, and she said I terminal. The only thing that will cure me now is if I happen to win tickets to the Wild tonight! Wow, just my luck you are giving away tickets!! You can save my life, come on dont you want to save a life today?

I most definitely deserve the tickets because it has been a loooong work week. First, I lost a contact in the middle of a presentation and had to squint at everybody through one eye, making myself look completely crazy. Then, my co-worker sneezed on my cereal as I was spooning it into my mouth...I feel a tingly throat coming on. Then my car died on my way home on Wednesday and I had to wait for a tow truck for 2.5 hours. When I got home, I realized my boyfriend had eaten all the leftover pizza. What did I get to eat? Cereal. #DinnerofChampions Finally, this morning, I broke a heel as I was walking into work. You know what I need? To see a hockey game...nay, to see the WILD Hockey game! This will make everything worth it.

My friend recently moved to Ohio for a job...the home of...well no hockey at all.  She regularly went to Wild games and is a MN native.  She's been quite upset since preseason has started with the fact that she won't be able to see many games this year at all, only one or two when she's back in town for holidays.  I know I'm entering this contest, but I'd give them to her, since she's here for the weekend for a wedding.

Well, I just lost my job, and wanted to take my girlfriend out tonight. She's never been to a Wild game!

I am most deserving because I ALWAYS dance when they ask you to "get up and daaaaaaance!!!" And it's usually the robot or the cabbage patch.
