It’s tradition on Thanksgiving that everyone around the dinner table reveals what they’re thankful for. Most people claim they’re thankful for their families, friends, loved ones and all that sappy garbage. But not us. Not here at Hockey Wilderness. We, after years of torturing ourselves by watching the Minnesota Wild attempt the sport of ice hockey, are thankful for just two things — hard liquor and cigarettes.
But something’s starting to feel different about this Wild team. Following a six-year stretch of aggressive mediocrity, if not longer, it finally feels like real change is about to take place.
