Yawn. I really detest the weekend. I have to work to pay bills on the weekend, and it really, really is not fun at all. Go to work, come home and do as much as humanly possible, all to jump up and work the second leg of the swing shift. Lovely.
Today's Walk has the Theodore saga, played out in Russo headlines, a fun video of Mikael Granlund, and a bit on the team the Wild will be playing.
Enjoy your day. I won't be.
