Wilderness Walk: Hockey on a Stick Edition

What's up, Hockey Wilderness!

I won't be on the site today, because I'll be at the State Fair. Probably hanging at Famous Dave's, listening to the blues band there. So hit me up! Today is the last day of the fair also. As an additional tie-in, my cousin just got married, and he proposed to his now-wife on the top of the giant slide. So there's that.

It's about the slowest news day of all time. So along with what news I've been able to dig up, here's a trailer that is honest about the "Pokemon" Video Games. My hope is that esteemed managing editor Tony will appreciate.

I've also tried to include some news about our rivals, calling that segment: "Rival Roundup."

We recorded another podcast last night, so look for that to be posted in the near future- it features some great discussions, with quality topics like: How glad are you that Dany Heatley is gone? Why did Anaheim pick up Heatley? AND.... What's your favorite movie (kind of)?

With that, I'll inform you that Minnesota United FC's 11-game unbeaten streak (Which included 2 draws) came to an end yesterday with a 2-1 loss to FC Edmonton. Minnesota has a guaranteed playoff spot, and at this point is simply playing to prove their superiority, and they will continue this Saturday, when the Tampa Bay Rowdies come to town.

With that, enjoy the "Honest Trailer" and let's move on to the Walk!
