Wildreness Walk: Welcome to November Edition

See what happened while you were busy having a happy halloween.

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

How was your Halloween? I wore a tiara to hand out candy and watch hockey, which was pretty great. I think I'm going to start wearing a tiara all the time, even when it isn't a holiday. Wearing a tiara just makes things better.

The Wild's game last night wasn't quite fit for a princess, but they managed to make it much less sad than it was at the beginning! (Isn't that what I was saying last week too? There might be something that needs fixing, so that it doesn't get sad at all.) It definitely turned into a mostly alright hockey game, although only the second best thing I watched yesterday, beaten out by It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. It was better than I Married A Monster From Outer Space, but only barely.

While I wasn't able to watch my favorite Halloween movie last night, but I can still share it with you for our weekly musical. This is an absolute classic, and if you've never seen it in theaters you're missing out on an incredible experience.
