I am not going to write about that game. I watched it. That's enough suffering in my life for one night.
Instead let's talk about the not terrible piece of Wild television from last night: Marco Scandella's Becoming Wild episode. It was practically perfect in every way. He skated with children! He beat children at basketball! He put on an amazing hat with a feather on it! If FSN had played this episode six times in a row instead of the hockey game my life would have had so much less sadness.
Last week I wasn't around to subject you to any musical theater because I was celebrating my dad's birthday. Today I want to share a song from one of his favorite musicals.
Stumped again: Wild shut out in second straight - StarTribune.com Don't read this unless you like reading miserable things.
Dubnyk looking forward to all-star trip to Nashville - TwinCities.com Hopefully he'll enjoy that trip more than this one.
