Wait. There's a game on today? What? Why did no one tell me? I can't believe the NHL and the Wild did not promote this in anyway. You say they are in Finland? The game is in two hours? Well, this just ruins my whole day. Come on. Playoff baseball, Randy Moss... things are exciting here in Minnesota. Like I need hockey. Stupid, boring hockey. No one even like hockey, no wonder they put it on at 11am.
Of course, I kid. My hands have just a touch of the shakes as the excitement builds to the puck drop today. Knocking out a game thread, a Walk, posting at SBN MN this AM... all before I make a mad dash for Target before the game so my kid can have milk. Selfish brat.
Enjoy the Walk today. Russo has out done himself.
