Wilderness Walk: Freaky Friday Edition

If no news is good news, I've got some bad news for you ...

Andrew Fielding-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning Wilderness Walkers! Here we are, another Friday strikes and the weekend draws near. With that, hockey inches ever closer! We sit here on the cusp of a new month, and with that comes the opening of training camps around the NHL and some fantastic pre-season hockey.

So, I promised you some news today. In reality, there is still not much going on, but I've managed to come across a few gems for you to procrastinate your way through your day. I've also got a little bonus coverage for you. Our very own Barry Campbell talked some hockey with Panda Pete of KATE 1450AM in Albert Lea a couple days ago. I've got that clip for you right here! Enjoy!

The guys had a nice conversation there, discussing a wide range of topics on the up and coming season. Coming up at Hockey Wilderness today, we continue our Top 25 Under 25 series, bringing you number 21. Who will it be? You'll have to stay tuned to find out!

Enough of all that business though. Lets get to what you all really came here for. So crank up the volume and take in the sweet sweet rhythmic stylings of  The Cheatahs! I have to tell you, the bass line at the beginning of the outro on this little ditty drives my brain wild! It's not that it's complex, quite the opposite actually. It's just..... perfect.
