For the first time in a few days, we have a full Walk. Plenty of good stuff out there, including quite a bit to poke fun at.So there's that. Hopefully you didn't get too fat and sassy during the lull.
Yesterday, I had a follower on Twitter blowup on me and unfollow me (GASP!) for tweeting about something other than hockey. I apologize for not finding something political to include in the Walk today just for them, but it was pretty full, and I didn't want to distract from the fun today. Apologies, Timmy. Your loss on Twitter will be felt greatly. Yeah, or not.
If you aren't too tired from the Walk, head over and check out the Facebook Question of the Day, consider making a donation to the Hockey Wilderness Movember team, and check out the left sidebar for the Hockey Wilderness store (There is an other new design, one we think you'll like) . We're coming at you from so many angles now, you can't help but get sucked in.
