Welcome one and all to the spectacle that is Hockey Day Minnesota. While some of you may not get it, hockey is a pretty big deal here. For all that it brings to us, Fox Sports North and the Minnesota Wild celebrate Hockey Day Minnesota every year. This year should be great (and is already underway).
Want to know what kind of fun you can expect? Watch the video below. Tell me you don't want to watch 147 hours of hockey.
After the jump, our standard Walk. Make sure you check out the Question of the Day, and watch for the Defending the Blue Line spot during HDM. Oh, and the Wild play at 8. Be here for that, there may even be someone to hang out with.
