Ah, day five. This is the day when everyone needs to muster up their loudest singing voice and really belt it out.
With news of so many fan favorites injured and out of play, there needs to be something to take your minds off of the stakes. Sure, the injuries could lead to a slip in the standings. Sure, the injuries could lead to all of the comments no one wants to hear. Yet, here we are, ready to poke fun at ourselves and continue singing songs.
As always, we searched and searched for a twelve days of Yule song, but all we found was a giant log. So... we'll stick to the 12 days of Christmas tune.
If you remember from the past few days, we are trying to get folks to donate to Toys For Tots. Last night, we learned Toys for Tots in 115K toys short of their goal, with just nine days left. One hundred and fifteen thousand. That is far too many kids going without. Please consider a donation today. I don't often beg. I'm begging today. Please donate.
Here is who they are:
Today's verse. After the jump.
Here is the tune we are working with:
And finally... today's verse:
On the fifth day of Wild Christmas, the Wild gave to me...
FIVE BORING GAAAAAMES! Four injured top six forwards, Three outstanding goalies, Two passive forecheckers, and a regression back to the mean.
