The first of six “Becoming Wild” presented by Toyota episodes will debut tonight on Fox Sports North following another Minnesota Twins pummeling of the Chicago White Sox.
Tonight’s episode begins immediately after the last Wild season ended on a somber note with the dismissal of Head Coach Todd Richards. The episode focuses on the Houston Aeros, and in particular Head Coach Mike Yeo as he readies his team for a crucial game against the Milwaukee Admirals in the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs.
Keep in mind that this footage was shot well before Yeo was offered or even interviewed for the Wild head job. But in under a half hour, you should get a strong sense for his ability to communicate with his players in a multitude of situations. Certainly, the climax of the episode will be his addressing his team during a timeout after his team fell behind 3-0 in Game 6. It’s must see TV, unless you have little ones and/or you don’t like a series of bleeps, because you’re going to get some of that.
Also, if any readers out there are friends with Manny Pacquiao, tell him to tune in. If he doesn’t get FS North, he can watch the entire episode after the original airing on his favorite website, Wild.com.
