Wilderness Walk: Post-Turkey Game Day Edition

New, comments

Time to wake up from the Thanksgiving Day food coma. The Wild are back in action tonight.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning Wilderness! Here we are, another day in shoppers paradise. I hope you all made it in and out of any store you dared to try shopping at yesterday or overnight, and got all the deals your little hearts desired. Any gifts to Hockey Wilderness can be shipped directly to my house where they will be sorted and distributed evenly to the staff.

So, I missed Wednesday nights game, and it sounds like I missed a doozy! It's not available on NHL Gamecenter Live yet, so I haven't had a chance to sit down and watch it. I'll let you kind folk decide on whether or not I should watch it, and maybe I'll live tweet the experience like the game is actually happening live. I bet I can confuse some of the twitter porn-bots that follow me with that sort of action.

Any-who .... 1 game in the NHL yesterday, and not much else going on. Happy black Friday everybody!

Make sure you stop over and see our friends at Defending Big D, the Dallas Stars blog of choice for this particular hockey fan. They worship me down there. I'm somewhat of a mythical creature, often discussed, yet never seen.
