..along with a strained groin, I'd much rather lie down.
Of course, I would never leave you with just an uneventful set of links, Wilderness. I need you to take action. In far away San Mateo, California, a community is about to have their ice rink taken away. And by ice rink, I mean a place where kids can express themselves through hockey and figure skating. Its a place where you can take your friends (or even that "special friend") and fall on your butts together. If I, a Floridian, have the ability to go to the rink every day and get slashed in the throat (non-call btw) at my leisure, why can't these kids in Cali? This is why I am asking you, as a Wilderness, to take a minute out of this slow Sunday and fill out this petition, click here, and help save this rink. As of 10:30 CST this morning, the petition is currently 485 signatures short, I'm sure we can make that number 0. Seriously, we are the state of hockey. It's our job to represent and protect the game of hockey, even if two California teams got outdoor games before us. C'mon boys, let's change some lives for the better!
