As we close out Movember, with countless (27) reminders to go to the doctor and get a check up, we ask you again, for the 28th time, to go to the doctor and make sure everything is as pleasant as you think it is. Sometimes, things sneak up on you. Make sure some one has your back.
Today, the Wild are on a two game losing streak, and we are once again bombarded by calls of regression and unsustainable success. Because, as we were reminded when the Wild were in first, 20 games does not a season make. Funny, though, how two bad games is enough for the regressionists to claim victory. So, remember, in this "battle," 20 games is not a big enough data set, but two games is.
Now that you've had your lessons for the day, make the jump. The Walk is hefty today.
