Wilderness Walk: Making the Save Edition

New, comments
Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

The Walk is late, and it's my fault. I got home late from a rehearsal for a show I'm playing in Eau Claire, and forgot to do the Walk. BUT...it's roughly 30 minutes late, which I say is a pretty decent save. Right?

Some interesting news today, including Wild development camp announcements, and YOU'LL NEVER BELIEVE who is getting paid $7.5 MIL....

Video today is another tribute to the Women's World Cup team. Clearly, Hope Solo used this as inspiration.
