A Wild Evening

Last night, thanks to my wife's generous co-workers, we enjoyed a Minnesota Wild hockey game (preseason) against the Chicago Blackhawks.

It was a terrific game. While Gaborik was still sidelined with his injury (coach Jacque Lemaire hinted he may play Friday, 9/23) we did get to see newly acquired Brian Rolston - he looked sharp.

The first period was the best, where the Wild thwarted to powerplay opportunities by the Chi B'hawks, and scored the first goal. Their stick handling, passing, and skating were sharper and crisper than the opponents.

However, the Wild did look a bit flat footed compared to the scrappy B'hawks, and it showed. Quickly, the visiting team was up 2-1. While the Wild still clearly won two fights, things just weren't running up to par.

There was a shootout. Lemaire didn't like it (click on link). I did. Go Wild.


Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
