The Wild did well last night, doing what good teams do and finding a way win. However, we still have more important things to talk about. Did you know that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and that 1 in 2 (50%!!!) of men will be diagnised with some form of cancer in their lifetimes. 48% of testicular cancer is found in men ages 20-34. I am willing to bet that is a pretty big chunk of our readership.

Please, go get a physical. I did. Hockey players do. Why don't you?

If the spirit moves you, please donate to the Hockey Wilderness Movember team as well. The money goes to research to help fight the cancers that kill far too many.
