Wilderness Walk for 1-20-2012: Skydiving Edition

Wild practice may need to start looking different if they hope to pull out of the free fall. PULL THE CORD ALREADY.

If at first you don't succeed, sky diving is not for you. I've been sky diving. It's a rush met by few others. If you haven't been, you should try it. Perfectly good airplanes are meant to be jumped out of.

Now, if you are sitting atop the NHL in mid-December, I would suggest not jumping. I would also suggest not flying the plane directly into a mountain, as seems to be the case right now with the Wild. It is beyond explanation at this point. I know that opens the door to a load of stats to be thrown at me, but even those stats can't possibly explain this.

This is just 23 grown men, among the best in the world at what they do, being unable to execute the smallest and simplest parts of their jobs and getting snippy about it. It's almost.. pitiable. Everyone around here is in for the long haul, and we're all ready to get back to sunshine and rainbows. Lead the way.
