Wilderness Walk: No Negativity Here

Why so serious?
Why so serious?
Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

You gotta stay positive, right? I mean, we've heard for years that all the negativity in this town sucks. Right? What's not to be excited about? Your Minnesota Wild squad are sliding backwards through a cornfield without pants on, right into the playoffs. Now that is exciting, I don't care who you are!

Being completely fair, a team makes the playoffs based on a seasons worth of work. A bad week here and there, this doesn't make or break a teams chances. So, feel positive Wilderness! This team won when it needed to, and lost the rest. Be positive Wilderness! Just think, with only 60 minutes of regulation hockey left in the season, your Minnesota Wild are inching closer and closer to no more 3 on 3 overtime hockey! Be positive Wilderness! At least your not fans of the Colorado Avalanche.

In the theme of staying positive, today we bring you The Hold Steady with a happy little number, Stay Positive.
