[Site Exclusive] Today’s reason Evgeny Svechnikov is not in the lineup: WandaVision spoilers...
Alright folks, let’s put our misery to good use. The Wings are currently 0-40 on the PP. Whenever this streak comes to an end, I’ll donate at least $1 to the @JDanielsFund for each failed power play.— Prashanth Iyer (@iyer_prashanth) February 26, 2021
Credit to u/Denver_Law14 on the @RedditWings subreddit for the idea
This is a great idea and I’m happy to match. If you also want to do the same, Prashanth is tracking these pledges through the replies to that Tweet, so if you have an account on Twitter, just respond to that.
If you DON’T have a Twitter account, but want to play, email me your pledge. I’m at email@example.com.
