If you watched the Wild game last night: I'm sorry. That was trash. Moving on.
This is day two of the WJC tournament. The Wild have five prospects representing five different countries. I caught the USA/Canada game yesterday afternoon, where Louis Belpedio had the game wining goal for America, and looked pretty good all around.
My Christmas/Wild manicure is starting to chip, and I've been trying to decide what colors my nails should be next. I was thinking, maybe red white and blue to support team USA, but I'm not sure if I can rock that much patriotism. Then I realized that I could do one nail to represent each country that the Wild have a prospect from in the tournament, but that's a lot of colors and might clash. This is an important decision, and I'm generously leaving it up to you to decide by voting in the poll below.
