We've got a wait, Wilderness. We have to make it to Friday without seeing the Wild again. It'll be tough, but I think we can do it.
There's plenty of great news... including Bickel being sent down to waivers (please get claimed...)
Also, there should be a new podcast being recorded soon... tonight, possibly. So stay tuned!
With that, let's enjoy some good times!
