Wilderness Walk: Aftershock

Still naming the Walk after the music - which means we're still scraping for Wild news

Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports

Another summer day gone, another day closer to hockey.  A very exciting day in Olympic action treated us to Soccer, Gymnastics and Beach Volleyball.  But these summer sports sure make hockey seem far away.  But rest easy, it's getting closer with each passing day.  For now, keep enjoying those warm summer nights and world class competition of the Olympics.

This song has been stuck in my head for days, thanks to @WildGeorge12 I hope it sticks in yours.
