Hockey is back, right? I mean... it is happening somewhere, I think. Just not here. I know that because the Walk continues to get shorter and shorter. Non-game day yet again today, oh, and tomorrow. Good thing the players don't forget they are hockey players when they get this much time off. Hopefully.
Yes, an extremely short Walk today. I apologize for that, but if people don't write anything interesting, it is difficult to bring you interesting things in the Walk. Blame the world, not me. No really... blame the world. It deserves it.The good nes is, the short Walk gives you plenty of time for the Question of the Day, and it also gives you time to consider joining up with the Movember team.
