The Wild won yesterday, and it was mostly good, at least by the new very low standards I'm using to judge this team. I didn't want to cry once! Tonight they play the Blackhawks in Chicago, and have another shot at breaking my heart. Let's see what happens! This is fun! I'm having fun! If I use enough exclamation marks you'll have to believe me!!!!!!!!! Fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
