We've searched, scoured, sifted, combed, explored and examined, but there's only so much juice you can squeeze out of a rock.  Not much to report on the Wild front today other than there's only 57 days until opening night.   We are able to continue the conversation of sexual transgressions and sports with plenty of local and recent ties, but can also reach back into history and find very similar trends that tend to repeat themselves (see: Norm Green, Rachel Blount) and why this should remain an open conversation throughout the sports world.

To lighten the mood, here is BBC Radio1 throwing it WAY BACK to the infancy of electronic music by playing foundational house and trance pieces with a live orchestra - nothing but pure fun!  We Walk.
