Theatre As Radio Drama In The Age Of COVID

“This is theater of the mind, you know?” Wild says. “We do so much vocal work in the program, so much text work, so much breaking down a scene — What is this character doing? What do they want? What are they after? How do we portray that? — and it all transfers to radio.” – Washington Post

Canucks Look Good for Playoff Series Against the Wild

Now that the NHL has officially announced the 24-team playoff format, we know that the Vancouver Canucks will be playing the Minnesota Wild in the first round of the modified postseason. Too bad we will have to potentially wait until the end of July to watch the boys in blue and green take to the ice again. Nevertheless, hockey is back and we couldn’t be happier. So without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the first opponent the Canucks will have to face in their first journey to the Sta...

Split Eleventh Circuit panel rules Jeffrey Epstein's victims had no rights under federal CVRA before any complaint or indictment

A divided Eleventh Circuit panel today handed down a very long opinion on an very interesting issue concerning the rights of victims of a very high profile (and now very dead) federal defendant. The opinion for the court authored by Judge Newsom in In re Courtney Wild, No. 9:08-cv-80736-KAM (11th Cir. April 14, 2020) (available here), gets started this way: This case, which is before us on a petition for writ of mandamus, arises out of a civil suit filed under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act of 2...

Wild’s Prospect Problem & Guerin’s Plan to Fix It

The Minnesota Wild have a prospect problem. It’s on the verge of being fixed, but it’s up to current general manager, Bill Guerin, to continue fixing it. Bill Guerin (AP Photo/John Locher, File) In order to keep the franchise moving forward towards becoming a contender in the Western Conference, Guerin will have to be smart, shrewd and downright devious. He’s also going to have to do it while rebuilding the major departments he will rely on for his information and mitigating the dam...

Wild Living on the Playoff Precipice, As Usual

The year was 2003 and spring fever was definitely in the air. The Minnesota Wild, in just their third year, had not only crashed the Western Conference playoffs, but Jacques Lemaire has somehow guided his team of mostly has-beens and thank-their-lucky-stars-for-expansion players past the favored Colorado Avalanche and Vancouver Canucks and into the Western Conference Final.

One month later, Wild has changed narrative on its present -- and future

A month ago, the Wild was mired in about the worst place in the standings — barely on the fringes of the playoff race, but more likely to both miss the postseason and not get a high draft pick than any other outcome. In February, the franchise fired the head coach, Bruce Boudreau, the man the Wild hoped would lead it to playoff success when hired four years. The Wild was in the midst of exploring a trade involving Zach Parise — one of two cornerstones signed another four years before Boudreau's ...

Wild Can Only Rely on Backup Stalock for So Long

The only Minnesota Wild goaltending controversy is that there isn’t one. As long as backup goalie and hometown hero Alex Stalock is getting the job done, he deserves the net. Simple as that. Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise and Alex Stalock – (AP Photo/Jeffrey T. Barnes) Stalock vs. Dubnyk Incumbent No. 1 Devan Dubnyk simply hasn’t done enough to warrant more starts, with his last coming on Feb. 23 against the St. Louis Blues (a loss in which he allowed four goals).

Leon Draisaitl scores as puck takes crazy bounce off opponent's skate (Video)

Edmonton Oilers center Leon Draisaitl scored a goal with the help of the strangest bounce you will ever see during Friday night's game against Minnesota.It happened in the second period with the score tied at 2. The Oilers won the faceoff in the Wild zone, with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins taking the puck and passing it back to Matthew Benning at the point. Benning shot the puck wide and it bounced along the boards and around the back of the net to Draisaitl. Draisaitl tried to center it and the puck...

Gordon Wild focusing on making the Galaxy roster after two “up-and-down” seasons to start professional career

Gordon Wild needed some time to reevaluate his soccer career. It would be understandable if Wild was in the latter stages of a career, but here he was, just two years removed from signing a Generation Adidas contract with MLS and being selected by Atlanta United in the 2018 SuperDraft. “I was originally planning on going back to Europe and playing there,” he said Wednesday following the Galaxy’s 2-1 preseason win against Colorado. “I was in Amsterdam visiting my dad and in the middle of January,...

‘The Call of the Wild’ Clip: Harrison Ford Befriends a Cartoon Dog

The Call of the Wild looks like a perfectly nice movie. Harrison Ford grew a beard and signed up to make a family film, which is surprising, since he seems like he’d rather…not do that sort of thing. But here he is, starring in Call of the Wild as John Thornton, who sets off on an adventure with a big dog named Buck. Buck is the real star of this movie, and he’s also completely digitally animated, which is just a little weird. Watch a new Call of the Wild clip below, where Harrison Ford meets B...

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter ($6.49) is starting to hit the drugstore scene! I picked up two shades recently at Harmons and was pleasantly surprised to find them there since Wet n Wild, like most brands, has started migrating a lot of their seasonal and new releases onto their website directly. I mean, it can take several weeks or even months before a new item to launch in stores once Wet n Wild launches it on their website! It was nice seeing a few new displays pop up at Harmons.

Jets Right to Be Angry About Officiating

The Winnipeg Jets and their fans are right to be rankled by rotten officiating that influenced the result of their latest game against the Minnesota Wild. Inconsistent Calls Abound, Confound The first play the Jets took issue with was a third-period non-call that led to the Wild’s game-tying goal. Defenseman Josh Morrissey took a clear hit from behind from Kevin Fiala, who saw the alternate captain’s numbers the whole way but drove him into the boards anyway. Kevin Fiala boarded Jo...

Staal Scores in Overtime to Give Wild 3-2 Win Over Jets

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Eric Staal poked home a rebound after a scramble in front of the Winnipeg goal on Saturday, sending the Minnesota Wild past the Jets 3-2 in overtime. Marcus Foligno and Luke Kunin also scored for Minnesota, which put up a season-high 44 shots on goal. Devan Dubynk stopped 19 shots for the Wild, who finally solved Winnipeg’s league-worst penalty-kill. Minnesota was 0-for-5 on the power-play in regulation before scoring on Blake Wheeler’s slashing penalty in the extra sessi...

Salvation Army Pushes For Last Minute Donations Amid Center Consolidation

RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) — If you’re looking for a tax break and donate to a good cause, you have just a few more hours to donate, and it might be harder to find a location to do so.
