Wilderness Walk: Scott Sterling Edition

New, comments

The Wild won last night on the road in Philadelphia in dramatic fashion.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning Wilderness, and welcome to yet another edition of the Wilderness Walk! Last night your Minnesota Wild walked into Philadelphia, and walked out with their heads held high, and that's about all I know about it. I was busy during the game, so all I got out of it was Jason Zucker is a hero, Mikko Koivu is dying (rumors may have been exaggerated) and Stu Bickel played actual minutes (are you fucking kidding me?)

So the Wild won on some last minute heroics, and some other stuff may or may not have happened as well.

All that is well and good, but the real story we've all been missing is one Scott Sterling, and his incredible bravery! For those of you who have not seen this video yet, it is a must watch. If you even know what soccer is you will likely fall out of your chair laughing. I nearly died, choking on pizza and root beer which I mistakenly was consuming whilst watching this video. Enjoy!
