Wilderness Walk for 2-8-2010

There are some older links in today's walk. I figured everyone was distracted by the Super Bowl yesterday. In case you are unaware of what the Super Bowl is, it is some kind of football game at the end of which a champion is crowned. At least, that's what they tell me, because I watched it, and they gave the "trophy" to the owner of the team first, not the captain, and it was a really small, weird looking thing anyway.

Ah well, to each his own, I guess. Here we go:

First Things First:

In His Memory - Pension Plan Puppets If you are looking for a way to honour Brendan Burke's memory a donation to PFLAG - Great idea from Wrap Around Curl. SBN raised a ton of money for Haiti, we can do the same for this great organization. Check it out, donate if you can.

Wild News (Old & New):

KiPA's Korner:

Off the Trail:

Michael Russo's Sunday Insider: A hockey titan mourns | StarTribune.com - Russo spoke with Brian Burke, but it was before the terrible tragedy. Interesting article.

Guide to Surviving a Visiting Red Wings Fan - Some pure awesomeness from Matt over at The View From My Seats.

 

Yep. Two full days, and that's all I can come up with. Your home work assignment for today is to list as many reasons as possible describing why the Stanley Cup is better than any other trophy, specifically the Lombardi trophy.
