Wilderness Walk: Long Time

New, comments

Well, Wilderness, do you want good news, bad news, or both?

I guess I shouldn't have asked, because I'm going to tell you them all, and only in the order that I choose. HA!

Good News: This should be a GREAT Stanley Cup Final.

Bad News: We have to wait till Wednesday to get it kicked off.

Good News: Minnesota United FC Played maybe their best game of the week on Saturday, and against the New York Cosmos, a team they've yet to beat, and probably the best game in the league.

Bad News: A late mistake from Minnesota defender Cristiano Dias saw New York tie the game in the 90th minute, denying Minnesota the win they pretty well deserved.

In any case, the game is on! Wednesday night, Lightning/Hawks. This should be good.
