The Minnesota Wild fell to the Chicago Blackhawks last night by a 2-0 margin. I already wrote about all that tonight though. You can read that here or here or here. (Psssst. They’re all the same link!)
Instead I’ve really got nothing for you. I feel like I’m cheating, but I’m just going to get right into the music and your morning links.
Today we’ve got a little band called Simplified. I came across these guys randomly one day, and I feel like I’m a better person for it. Enjoy!
