Today's Walk is a fun one. We have a Cinderella story, a never quit story, some love for the hard working guys (Sorry Tom), and some fun with video. OK, three videos. We like to call those "work distractions."
Before we go too far, please consider either joining the Hockey Wilderness Movember team (link after the jump), or making a donation to the team. We have a lofty goal this year, and we need your help to raise awareness of men's health issues. We can't do it without you, and we don't want to do it without you. Join up, help the cause.
