Wilderness Walk for 2-14-2011

MOOOOOOOOOM! He was meeeean to meeeee!

Happy made up semi-romantic greeting card and flower sellers greatest wet dream day! Anyway, make sure you buy your special someone something. You have hereby been reminded, and warned. Even if they said they don't want anything... they do. Yes. They, do.

Today's Walk is full of some fun. Obviously tons of Aeros stuff, which is just fine with me. For the 5000 of you that were at the Aeros game yesterday, how did you like it? Anything they could do to improve the experience or draw more people? 

Don't forget to check out the Question of the Day, and then read up on Defending the Blue Line's Skate for the Troops. You know you want to.
