New, comments

EVERYONE HAS MUMPS!

Got mumps?
Got mumps?
Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

So, mumps. Yeah. Starting to get a wee bit old hearing about this, wouldn't you say?

So tonight the Wild look to get one back from the Ducks who, if they know what is good for them, will start Ilya Bryzgalov tonight at the X. I honestly think Wild fans would struggle with who to cheer for, and for a change the Wild might actually hear cheering on the power play. #ZING!

Today's music video has to one of the most fantastic acid trips to make it out of the 90's.

*EDIT: I have to apologize Wilderness, I totally buried the lead today. I have just been informed via the bookface that it is somebodies birthday today. So here, we get 2 musical selections! Make sure you wish Chris (mntrumpterguy) a very happy birthday!!!!
