Wilderness Walk for 4-10-2011: Game Day Edition

You feel it yet? This is it, folks. Today and then nothing until October. Nothing. Le sigh. Even with as bad as the past two months have been, it still sucks that the season is over. Sure would be nice to have some playoff hockey around here, wouldn't it? While other fans are just now gearing up for the most exciting hockey of the year, Wild fans are gearing up for a long, depressing summer.

We'll still be here, by the way. While things slow down a bit, Hockey Wilderness is around all summer. We'll be watching the playoffs, we'll (hopefully) be at the draft, we'll cover free agency, development camp, training camp, and before you know it, it will be October again. So, while things may get a little think in July and August, we're around for the long haul. Watch your baseball, but come and visit from time to time.

Don't forget to check out the Facebook Question of the Day, and check out the bracket challenge. Everything will be set tonight, and you have until Wednesday to get them in. Don't dilly dally, OK? OK.
