Now that we've finally learned how Ted Mosby met his babies' mama, How I Met Your Mother prop master Dave Baker has been sharing some choice behind-the-scenes moments from the show, including a wedding performance by Robin Sparkles featuring the future Ms. Tracy Mosby on bass that was cut from the finale.
