Wilderness Walk: "A" Man Down Edition

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that was one hell of a night huh? Parise goes down, everyone boo's, Prosser goes down, and there was much rejoicing, and the Wild ultimately lose, more boo's.

Let's break it all down, in much depth.

First period, well I pretty much missed all of this, so you're on your own. Someone mentioned to me something about a heart and soul of the team getting ripped out.

Second period, I was in and out. Things happened, pucks, sticks, ice. It was amazing hockey a decent time.

Third period, Steve Ott laughs at James Neal. Ryan Suter draws a penalty by slashing Colin Wilson. Wild don't play to the whistle and lose. Reports of a whistle malfunction are widely circulated on twitter.

That about sums it all up. Now get off my lawn!

I've very purposefully not included anything about this in my walks. Maybe once have you seen an article on this side show. This isn't terribly in depth, but the point it makes is a good one. Nobody wins here. Not 88, not Chicago Diaper Pale fans, not the alleged victim or her family, and especially not anyone seeking justice in their own sexual assault cases.
