Wilderness Walk for 9-29-2011: Game Day Edition

Maybe no one cares, but HW's traffic doubled in September over September of last year. Thank you to everyone for stopping by, and welcome back to those returning after a long summer.

Today is a hefty Walk as there is plenty going on in the sport, and with the team. Plus, we take a moment to mock a few people. I mean, it wouldn't be a Thursday without a terrible season preview and a somewhat stalkerish new site, right? Right.

The Wild practice then head to Columbus today, then turn around and fly right back home again. Sounds like a blast. Of course, being Columbus, someone is likely to get suspended today. Game day folks. Let's see those captions.
