Wilderness Walk for 1-21-2011: Stunned Silence Edition

In this picture: Four members of the Wild watch as the Oilers check themselves, and and official does his interpretive dance entitled "I'm a little teapot, short and blind."

I should learn to not be surprised when the league does something stupid. The raise in blood pressure and stress just aren't worth it. Of course, I've always had an issue with stupid people and stupid actions, so it likely doesn't go away. Still, it is amazing to see the lack of comment from any of the big names on this fine. I am hoping it is just stunned silence. 

Let me believe that, will you, please?

No game again today. The team is practicing, however, so there will likely be some kind of news from the team. While we all wait patiently for something to happen, head over to Facebook for the Question of the day. Bet you'll never guess what the topic is. 

Enjoy your day all.
