Wilderness, you are officially on notice that you are experiencing the calm before the storm.  We are within a few breaths of training camp, but the most exciting news is that Jason Zucker caught some fish at the Mike Yeo Classic on Lake Minnetonka.  Very soon, the news will be much more interesting and we won't be talking about the fluff and features of the offseason, we will be talking about HOCKEY!  So enjoy it while it lasts - things are about to get crazy.

Today's musical selection is dedicated to our rival city, which seems to have a bit of negativity flowing its way in the news today.  Let's Walk.
