Wilderness Walk for 12-12-2011

A gloomy, grey day here in the Twin Cities. Which is fine for December. What's not fine? It's 39 degrees and what little snow we had is all but gone. Stupid warmth. It's completely overrated.

Today's Walk has some fun in the mix, with a look at the kids coming through the system and other happenings throughout the fan base. It really is fun to see how the fans are having fun watching this team. As much as it is nice to see the team succeed, it is even better to see the fan base respond to that success. The inside jokes, the gentle jabs taken at others, the not so gentle jabs... it's all just fun to watch. Keep it up folks.

Make sure you stick around today as well as we kick of the Hockey Wilderness Twelve Days of Wild Christmas. You'll enjoy it. At least, we hope you will.
