Hey there, Wilderness.
It's here. TDD. Trade Deadline Day. And I have a feeling it is going to be a crazy one. The Score.com has a handy-dandy Trade Deadline Day Updater to keep up with the most recent transiactions.
Tomorrow, the Wild take on the Senators and try to glean some more points before chaos hits. The Wild face 4 back-to-backs this month, and they need to get ahold of whatever points they can.
I hate to disappoint you, but the musical selection today is not "Final Countdown." We're going cheesy 80's... but Europe's only hit wasn't good enough. It wasn't cheesy enough. This level of hype calls for only the cheesiest, hair-iest, 80's pop tune around.
