Today is going to be a fun day. Build up to the Hawks, more Wild Christmas, some Hot Dish for lunch. Good thing my day will be spent focused on school. Stupid school.
Last night was great and all, but tonight is the big one. All eyes will be on this game, and the Wild need a showing of showings. That could be tough with a game last night and travel, and customs. All of this could add up to a really bad game. Or, maybe Mike Yeo pulls them all in a room and explains to them just how it is, they all dig down and find just a little bit more.
Should be fun. Enjoy. Please... Occupy the X, and be loud.
Good sized Walk, but hurriedly put together. If we missed something, please share it in the comments.
