Wilderness Walk for 9-20-2012: If I Close My Eyes Forever

Random search term: Mumbai.

If I close my eyes forever... will it all remain the same? If I close my eyes forever... will it all remain unchanged?*

Your obvious statement is obvious of the day: this lockout sucks. Something needs to happen. Either a hockey god needs to break with the norm and force the issue, the Aeros need to start camp, high schools need to start early, or colleges need to get it in gear. Something. Anything.

Please, hockey gods. Please save us from this hell on earth. At the very least, please give us something to write about. If we can ask anything of you, we ask for that small favor.

Your links. After the jump.
