Wilderness Walk: So you think you can win Edition

The Wild put one in the 'W' column last night. #OhGoodForYou

Not a lot is better than the dejected look of  Kings fans.

I sure did pick a good game to fall asleep to before the 2nd period began last night didn't I? So, essentially, in my mind, despite what I'm reading, and all these commas, the Wild still haven't won and broke their slump yet. Facts are facts, and I haven't seen it, so it must not have happened!

A win is a win, but I'm still not feeling any better about this team. Season after season it just feels like a broken record of broken hearts and broken promises. A win is nice, only until the next loss.

Enough of the depressing stuff though. What are you guys up to tonight? Still trying to finalize your Friday night plans? Well do I have a treat for you! Join our very own Barry Campbell and his band Same Day Delivery (like them on bookface), LIVE, TONIGHT, WILD TYMES IN ST. PAUL!!! You like music, don't you? So what's holding you back? No cover, all ages, NO F****** EXCUSES! Our music today is provided by Barry's other band, Fancy Bastard!

Here is a track from Same Day Delivery
