Wilderness Walk for 10-19-2012: Screw It - Let's Play Hockey

Today's secret word? Taco. No. Not kidding. - Jamie Squire

Your daily time wasters.

The NHL and NHLPA have determined, once again, that the season is not something that is likely to happen. We here at Hockey Wilderness already knew that, but some of our favorite friends tried to convince us otherwise. It didn't work. The NHL does not appear to coming back soon, so it is time to turn our attention elsewhere.

Defending the Blue Line has a major fundraising game coming up on October 28th at Mariucci Arena at 7PM. This is a big deal, folks. A host of players are making the commitment to help DTBL raise much needed funds that are being lost on a daily basis due to the lockout. This isn't a "We will not support the players" moment. This is a "we want to help military kids play hockey" moment.

Set the politics aside, and buy some tickets. $20 in advance, $30 at the door. This is important. It is important to DTBL, and dammit, it is important to me. Check it out, and then buy the tickets. Go. Now.
