Wilderness Walk: Lazy Monday Edition

New, comments

Lazy Monday, wake up in the late afternoon, check the Wilderness just to see what we doin'...

Hannah Foslien

'Sup, Wilderness? here's some hot licks for your walk.

You'll be inundated soon enough with draft talk, end of season grades, "what should we do now" type things. Remember- the Wild's organizational meetings aren't until about June 9, so we likely won't start having answers till then.

There is a new episode of the podcast. Also- MN United regained 1st place after defeating the Fort Lauderdale Strikers 3-1 on Saturday- stay tuned for my game recap at about 2:00 CDT.

For now, on to the walk.
