Wilderness Walk: Gameday Edition

Is it time to fly (now)?

Which Rocky will we see, I or II?

Yo Wilderness: GET HYPED.

Alright kid, you made it through the first round. Nice. But that don't mean nuthin' now.

You got the defending champ Chicago Blackhawks tonight. Chances are that its gonna have to go all 7 rounds if yer hopin' to walk out with the win.

Now you're gonna eat lightning and-...crap. I haven't even seen Rocky II and the only Mickey I know is Mickey Rourke, but hey. I tried.

So yeah, you're Minnesota Wild are taking on the Jonny Toews and the co. Game 1's tonight at 8:30pm CST. You can't help but love how even when we do match up with, not one but, 2 other CST team, we still can't get games that can let you get to bed before 11.

On the bright side, the Wild went 3-1-1 this season against the Hawks and just knocked out the team that went 4-1 against the same Hawks team. On the not-so bright side, it's the Chicago Blackhawks. On top of that, it's the Chicago Blackhawks.

Let's Walk.
