Wilderness Walk for 3-23-2012

Is that a quarter?!?

Don't look now, but there is actually something to read about the Wild. That'll happen when you drop a guy from the ceiling to to the ceremonial puck drop, go down two goals, and then come back to win in the shootout. Of course, this may all have been a well designed ruse to lure Wild fans into believing they are actually the reincarnated North Stars.

I kid, I kid.

I have an interview with Brad Maxwell burning a hole in our pocket, and no time to transcribe it, so it's got me a little punchy. Maybe we'll have that ready by Monday. Either way, make sure to get involved in the North Stars Reunion events next weekend. They look like they could be good stuff.
