Wilderness Walk.... Fifth

New, comments

We are close- so close- to actual hockey stuff happening. In the meanwhile, apparently the Vikings’ season is already ruined, Arsenal refused to buy any player that would address any of the very real needs they have, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic has continued to score for fun. The Columbus Crew won their first game since Harambe died- and that’s not a joke, that’s a measure of time.

And, for many, school has begun again.

So, let’s celebrate with a Fifth, shall we?
