Wilderness Walk 7/22/2013: You vs. The Work-Week, Day 1 Edition

USA TODAY Sports

In today's news we got Hackett putting pen to paper, Jamie Langenbrunner just because I love typing that last name, and the gloves come off with some local figure skaters? All this and much much more in today's Wilderness Walk!

Good morning Wilderness! Another Monday is upon us as we greet the work week with keen eye for the task at hand, but before we get to that ...

Now for an update to the little section below, you probably noticed it slipped in yesterday with little explanation. So Wilderness not that you need the reminder but we are going to provide it for you anyways. Defending the Blue Line is holding their 2013 edition of their now annual NHL Players Charity Game on Saturday, August 3rd at Ridder Arena on the U of M Campus, doors open at 1 pm. They have autograph line tickets available as well but in a limited supply so get on that quick.

Honestly, it's a pretty big deal guys, and if you can't make it to the game there are other ways to get involved like purchasing tickets for a military family. They have a bunch of NHL players as well as a blockbuster coaching staff. Tickets are just $10 right now, $15 on game day so at the very least you get a cheap hockey game in August, you honestly have no excuse here.

In today's news we got Hackett putting pen to paper, Jamie Langenbrunner just because I love typing that last name, and the gloves come off with some local figure skaters? And look! We have a next event!!!

DTBL Charity Game

Make sure to head over to Defending the Blue Line and get your tickets to the 2013 NHL Players Charity Game on August 3rd. Can't make it? No problem! Buy some tickets to be donated to a military family. Doors open at 1 pm on the U of M Campus at Ridder Arena.
