Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

New, comments
Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Wilderness!

It's a beautiful day- fresh off a fantasy victory (6-2) over our own Noogie, in our battle-of-the-bottom-feeders... well, at least I didn't lose to HIM, that hack!

The Wild travel to the Wall tonight, to do battle against Bryan Little, Andrew Ladd and the rest of the Night's Watch.

It's not  fast news day, but it's not a slow one either. The guys recorded a new podcast yesterday, so that should be up in the next day or so.

For today's musical stylings, we have a song that is best watched and listened to imagining it as being sung by Tony and Joe, our fearless leaders, about the Wild's winning ways ("just out of reach). ENJOY!
