I'm out of breath. Sucking wind. I didn't even skate. Woof.
Two games, two night, two wins. That's the new Minnesota Wild hockey. Or, at least we can hope. Some exciting stuff going on with this team right now. I still have this nagging feeling of apathy in the back of my head, but it is quickly fading. If this team can play like this consistently, I may just buy in again. Maybe.
As for all of you, a quick thank you. During the lockout, we had our doubts that you would come back. The players and owners were fighting, and we had no idea what the result would be for our site. Without a doubt, you all came back. Not only the same people, but new folks, to the tune of major increases in the community.
Yesterday, we set a new all time, single day traffic record for the site. This is mainly due to some kid name Mikael Granlund scoring his first goal, and the entire nation of Finland checking it out, but it was also our regulars. Thank you for being a part of this. It really does mean the world to me, and the rest of the staff.
