There really isn't much in terms of Wild news other than pre-draft analytics and speculation. Yet there is one change up, I came across a mentioning of Justin Falk. Of course, it was of him being let go as per the usual, but hey! What better time to go through a Justin Falk photo montage!?!?!?
THE BEST OF JUSTIN FALK
*PICTURES OF JUSTIN FALK
If only he could wind up for a slapshot like that.
Too much 44 for one picture.
The patented Juicer Falk hip check.
Launched by my still-favorite Cal Clutterbuck, who's half a foot shorter.
So what does @JuicerFalk mean to me? When I was still playing Pokemon Emerald, I named my Aron "Falk". He was quite the serviceable fellow, for he was my rock. And by rock, I mean HM slave. I taught him Dig, Rock Smash, and Strength. When he eventually reached his levels of Aggron greatness, aka level 42 and beyond, I had made it through the elite four and on to face Wallace, the Pokemon league champion. As any other Pokemon trainer who picked Mudkip as their starter knows, Ludicolo is a bitch. This same Ludicolo took out my Swampert and really put me in a bind. I had managed to make it all the way to his final Pokemon, Milotic, thanks to the efforts of my beastly Swellow, fittingly named Spurge. Spurge was on his last limb and I was forced to use Endeavor to bring Milotic down to 1 HKO range while sacrificing said Spurge. Little did I know, it would all be for nothing. I sent out "Falk" and he was quickly disparaged by Milotic's Surf. And bam. Had to restart. And of course, I didn't save. No Rayquaza for me. Damn you, Justin Falk.
Now as Justin Falk walks off of the Rangers and into irrelevance/the minors,
let's take a Walk ourselves.
