Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

Here I am proudly representing the Wild on Jamaica's 7-mile beach in Negril.

The photo you see above represented one of my favorite moments on my trip to Jamaica, showing off my Wild pride in paradise.

Hello again, Wilderness!

Did you all miss me while I was gone in Jamaica over this past week?

I bet you all did. In case you're wondering, I had a great time with my own family as well as all the other families on my dad's side that came on this trip.

As you can see from the photo above, I proudly represented the Wild whilst being on that trip (despite that skid they were on). Being in that shirt made me a conversation-starter too, as I got asked by some people staying at our resort how I got to be a Wild fan. I was also lucky enough to be in presence of another fellow Wild fan there too in addition to all the other NHL fans I saw there (to be specific, I saw some Islanders, Maple Leafs, Blackhawks, and Flyers fans).

With that giant vacation rant out of the way, let's get back to some more important Wild things (see what I did there?). The Wild continue this stretch of home games with a visit from the Washington Capitals. The last time the Wild played them in Washington, they ended up losing in a shootout 3-2 with Backstrom getting the only goal in it. The Wild played a very solid game against the Caps though despite that loss. Can they break through this time for the win? We'll all find out tonight.

Enjoy the game tonight, Wilderness!
