This was the first Wild game of the year that I seriously considered turning off after the first period. After that hilariously bad mess they at least managed to make it interesting, which was appreciated. Last night I also watched Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, so it's debatable if this game is even the worse thing to grace our television. If I had stayed on FSN after the game for Nate Prosser's Becoming Wild then I'm positive a new low point would have been reached.
Last Sunday I forgot to include a piece of musical theater, or any song at all. I blame being distracted by Matt Hackett's continued existence — this is going to be my new excuse to use in all situations.
Today's song isn't from a movie, but it's about a movie — the only movie I care about right now — and it's awesome.
