Two days into the new year, and I can feel the snark level rising already. It is my new year's resolution to be a snarky bastard, so I am well on my way. I have faith I can pull it off.
Since I have you here, let me ask a question. With the Pioneer Press not putting their Wild stories online until the day after they run in print, are you more likely to:
1. Go buy a Pioneer Press newspaper so as not to miss out on the coverage.
2. Completely forget that the Pioneer Press exists, causing them to lose the advertising revenue they may have received from the clicks on the website.
Please, be honest with me. I'm a big boy, and I can handle it.
Getting back to today, the Wild play our good friends in the southwest, the Phoenix Coyotes. That means being able to chirp the folks at Five For Howling ,so feel free to stop over there and poke fun and Travis and the gang. I mean, here we are, with the Wild once again playing the team directly above them in the standings. The Wild have lost more of these games than they have won, so now is the time to talk trash, right? Right.
Make sure to stop by Facebook for the Question of the Day. Would love to read your thoughts. See you tonight for the game.
