Looking over the roll on the Hockey Wilderness Movember team, I can't help but notice that it is well shy of the nearly 2000 members Hockey Wilderness has. Don't make me leaf through the user profiles and call each one of you out by name. No one wants that.
Join the HW team today, or shut me up and throw us a donation. Or, you know write a check directly to me, and I will be sure it gets to the proper authorities.
