Good Morning, Wilderness!
I'm assuming we're covered in no fewer than 3-4 feet of snow, based on the number of warnings I'm hearing about the upcoming weather-ocalypse. So... hopefully everyone is warm out there!
This isn't a super-fast news day, but nor is it a slow one. It is the day before the Wild take on the Devils... so we have one day more to wait.
There is big news that deserves it's own place, above the Walk proper. Tomorrow, for the first time in twenty years, Pink Floyd will release a new album. It's been on pre-sale (and pre-purchased by me) for some time now, and it drops today. So... BOOM. In celebration, I present track 4 from Floyd's second album: Corporal Clegg, from A Saucerful of Secrets. It features maybe the greatest instrument of all time, the Kazoo.
With that, let's get to the Walk.
update: I've listened to most of the new album, and it's pretty great.

I wish the league would figure stuff out. And be consistent. Especially that second one.

Good question, and one many are asking. Is the problem with the players, coaches, staff, or is there no problem at all? You be the judge.
