For my Dad: Low fly bys

A friend sent me a link to a You Tube video of low airplance fly bys. It opens with a great scene from Top Gun, but then transitions into great real life fly bys.

He is a notorious whiner. But last night he earned his punk label by going after Henrik Zetterberg when the game was over for the Penguins. That's when rookie goalie Jimmy Howard stepped in and backed up his teammate. Here's the video:
