Happy Halloween all! Whether you are young or old, Halloween always has a special meaning. Free candy is great, the costumes are always fun, and if you are old enough, some of the parties can get out of control. However, the real reason Halloween is exciting is because it marks the end of the first month of play.
What does that mean?
A full month of play gives you a pretty good sample size to see what kind of team you are watching. Save for long winning streaks or slumps, a month long look at a team should give a pretty good idea if they have it or not. What you get out of the Wild after this month compared to last October is up to you.
Go answer the Facebook Question of the Day. Enjoy the Walk. Have a safe Halloween.
