Wilderness Walk 6-16-2013: Dads Day Edition

Happy Dads Day to all the fathers out there!

Harry How

Good morning Wilderness, I hope this finds you well. Today as you should already know is Fathers Day so be sure to give the big guy a call and let him know how much he means to you. I'm sure this video has been seen by many of you, in fact it may have been posted on the Wilderness before. Well, here it is again then.

In the world of hockey, the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks needed overtime to settle things again. This time Boston was able to finish the job and bring the series back to bean town tied at 1 a piece.
