Odd Ramblings from Northern Minnesota

Hello Wilderness.


Attention Chicago Blackhawks:
Matt Cooke is back, I repeat Matt Cooke is back!
Better hide your kids, hide your wives, and hide your Star NHL Players because we’re kneeing everybody out here.

-End Disclaimer- Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

I couldn’t be more excited about the direction this team is heading.
We have exciting young talent.
We have star players in Zack, Ryan, and Heatley.
We have fantastic jerseys, thanks to the new whites.
Our new division is the most competitive in hockey.
We’re building Rivalries. Screw the Jets, Avs, Hawks, Blues, and Stars!
We have a potential outdoor game on the horizon.
Mittens isn’t on our top line.
Plus we have playoff hockey, besides Canucks and Sharks fans, who doesn’t love playoff hockey?
Enjoy the ride folks, so far these are the best years in the Wild’s short history.

Also Chicago, how can you bench defense man Nick Leddy?
Nick Leddy the former Minnesota Golden Gopher, Mr. Hockey, Eden Prairie Cake Eater, and Wild draft pick! We will gladly take Leddy back, the only reason MN ever parted ways with this homegrown talent was for the unique skill set of the amazing Cam Barker!

That went well

On to the Walk
