Wilderness Walk: Let the Countdown Begin!

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

We have just 4 more days till training camp begins... and it can't come soon enough.

We recorded a new episode of the podcast last night, with a SPECIAL NEW GUEST! That should drop on Tuesday, so chiggity-check it out, and listen to the last episode in the meantime!

There is another sport happening now... something about a foot and a ball, yet feet aren't really involved and the ball is egg-shaped. Anyways, the team from Minnesota lost. We'll wish the purple all the best next week. With that, enjoy some music, and let's get to the Walk.
