WINNIPEG – On Saturday night before the Manitoba Moose faced off against the Rockford IceHogs, the jets farm team welcomed in their 5 millionth fan since the franchise was moved from St.Paul, Minnesota to Manitoba in 1996.
Paul Vieira, his wife Ginny, and their 5 year old daughter Leigha unexpectedly walked into an array of confetti and noisemakers as him and his family were named the Manitoba Moose’s 5 millionth fans.
“Crazy” Paul exclaimed, “I was just so shocked and surprised when we walked in.”
As the 5 millionth Moose fan, Paul wins a prize pack, including a commemorative Manitoba Moose Jersey, and 2017-18 season Tickets. The Vierras also viewed Saturday’s game from the executive suite from the press box.
