The good news this morning? Three out of four points on the short road trip, AND we didn't have to stay up until midnight to watch the Canucks game. Central division, he we come! Sigh.
Today's Walk is a good one. Some good stuff about the game, from both sides, a big trade after the game, some news on the Aeros, and some news on the prospects. Good stuff all around. Beyond that, it is Sunday, which means all of you are, for some unknown reason, going to sit in front of your TVs and watch the Vikings get killed by the Packers. If, for some reason, you decide you have some self-esteem and don't wish to waste your day with them, stop by about noon for the first Stock Market Report of the year.
It'll be fun. Like stickin' it to the man.
We have a Question of the Day up over on Facebook as well. Also, a reminder, just a little over a week until Movember. Who's in?
