Wilderness Walk for 3-10-2011: Game Day Edition

With the Wild getting jobbed pretty good after a day off, they are back on the road and back in action. Games against the Predators are never what they should be. Two defensive minded teams meet in the woods and suddenly goals are being scored and babies are crying. It's ugly. Entertaining... but ugly.

The Daily Scoreboard Watch should make it clear that other teams are not going to make this easy. The Wild need to win, and they need to win a lot. That is the only thing they can control, and they need to control it with a focus that would scare small children.

Crying babies. Scaring small children. Must be a playoff race.

The Scoreboard watch is up about 9:45, and Nathan will put up another daily thread for the AA class. We'll shoot for 10:30 on that again. Saw some traffic come in yesterday to read that post, so if you are new to HW, stick around. We cover the Wild, too. Ha! 

As always, the Question of the Day is up over on Facebook, and make sure you check out the Defending the Blue Line Camo sweater auction. Only about a week left!
