Wilderness Walk: Middle O' Summer

Everyone wins once they leave Minnesota Sports! - Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Anyone else on board to pay Gaborik "Crosby Money" and win a cup next year?!?!

I would like to start out by saying that I couldn’t be happier for Willie Mitchell and Marion Gaborik. It was great to watch two former Wild Legends not only play well, but hoist the greatest trophy in Sports. If only they could have accomplished this in Minnesota back in 2003!!! My only problem with LA winning was that I had to watch Dustin(Goon) Brown win his second championship...Sad Face

Random Notes:
I was surprised at how well the Rangers played in the Finals.
I still feel that over the past 3 years only one team from the East (Bruins) actually had a chance at beating the Western conference champs in a best of 7.
As long as the West keeps winning, and Canada continues to not, I will remain moderately happy!

Also, a shout out to Matt Greene, thanks to you a Fighting Sioux Alum has won the Cup 4 out of the last 5 years! Greene also became the 4th player in Sioux history to win multiple Stanley Cups. Gophers and Big Ten Hockey Suck!!

World Cup! Go USA!
