Wilderness Walk for 1-23-2013

People with a purple umbrella. - Mark Kolbe

Your daily links and news.

After last night, it is difficult to think that any of you actually want to read about hockey, but we soldier on. The best way to cure a hangover is a little hair of the dog that bit ya, and so it is with terrible hockey. Jump right back into it and read all about the game.

Or, you know, curl up in a ball and call it a day. I may just do that.
