Before we get started... please, go vote. I don't really care who you vote for, what your political viewpoint is (nor does anyone else here), or what is the most important issue to you. We only love hockey here at Hockey Wilderness, something that binds us together rather than driving us apart. At the same time, we ask that you do your duty as a citizen and cast your vote.
Remember... if you can't decide who to vote for, you are welcome to vote for me by write in. I have received votes for anything from District Water Manager to President of the United States. Alas, I did not win any of them.
To entertain you after you vote, you can create-a-caption for the picture at the top of the post, you can answer the Facebook Question of the Day, you could make a donation to the Hockey Wilderness Movember team, or you could join the team and help raise donations of your own!
Make the jump for another short Walk, but we do get a new friend.
