Wilderness Walk for 2-4-2012: Game Day Edition

It's Saturday. It's game day. In Dallas. The Wild have not won in Dallas in almost nine years. I'm sure it's too small of a sample size to claim there is some intimidation factor there for the Wild without getting a lecture, but let's just say... there really is no reason fro Russo to be there. Most likely he could just use a gamer from one of the other games he covered there, and just change the coach's name.

Yeah, I have some doubts.

The good news? My taxes are done, and thanks to paying out a ton in college tuition, we get some money back. Which, more than likely will go to such exciting endeavors as... paying off a credit card. Yes, kids, I'm living the dream.

Enjoy the game tonight. Part of my dream is working on Saturday nights. Fun.
