Wilderness Walk: College Hockey Day Edition

New, comments

Good morning Wilderness! Not only have the Wilderness Fantasy Hockey League drafts been completed (I was only sniped five or six times), but today is stuffed full of college hockey news, as well as updates on YOUR Minnesota Wild!

So let's get to it!

Before we do- if you haven't given yesterday's podcast a listen, be sure to- it's fantastic!

And now, for your walking tunes... this guy impersonates Luciano Pavarotti (an Italian opera singer) and Freddie Mercury singing Nessun Dorma, an aria (pretty song) from Turnadot, an Italian opera by Puccini. Supposedly this was filmed in one take, without any audio editing or anything.
