Today's Walk is sparse. This season seems different from last in that when the team is off, the news almost stops. Maybe it happened last year, too and I just didn't notice.

Xcel Energy Center nominated for Arena of the Year | Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal - This should really read "X nominated for award that is only ever award to Madison Square Garden." The award has been around since 1992, and MSG has won it 15 times. That would be 15 out of 18. Why bother having the award. By the way, it is voted on by a concert promotion company, so...
