Man Stumbles Across Hockey While Flipping Channels And Is Blown Away By Sport’s Existence

After channel surfing in search of another sporting event, Twitter-named “Tony X.” found himself gazing upon Game 7 of the first-round playoff matchup between the Blackhawks and the Blues. Intrigued by the never-before-seen sport, Tony X. turned to Twitter to express his opinions. What happened next was absolutely brilliant (warning: some offensive language):



Now, clearly a Game 7 isn’t everyone’s first view of a sporting event – but clearly, the intensity and body checking occurring was enough for Tony X. to become NHL’s newest and greatest fan.


Tony X. had to keep Google open as he discovered what a Power Play was. He was bewildered when the goalie left the net near the end of the game.

You learn to appreciate how great of a sport something like the NHL is when someone who has never observed it before is fascinated by what you think are the simplest of things. Thank you, Tony X., for opening our eyes to the excitement, intensity, and bravado of the National Hockey League. We look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Thanks to the interest and excitement Tony X. fell in love with, the St. Louis Blues awarded him with tickets to an upcoming playoff game, appreciative of the support given.
