He's now a fan for life.

Posted on

Tony Hardy was looking for baseball on TV last night but found the Blues vs. Blackhawks hockey game instead. The action was so intense that he began tweeting the world's most beautiful, urgent hockey newbie tweets.

Tony Hardy

Yo deadass this the first time I've ever watched hockey and this shit has been LIT for these first 45 seconds

"I had never watched hockey before last night for more than literally a few seconds," he told BuzzFeed Canada.

Sometimes he had to look things up.

I gotta have Google open I see...

Fans soon discovered his tweets and started retweeting and liking them like crazy. Hardy didn't know what was going on, but he was loving the game, his new hockey friends, and all this new puck knowledge.

All i know is Im bout to watch the mighty ducks and have superior knowledge on hockey now.

This shit lit as Fuck Lmaooooooo

He couldn't believe what he'd been missing all these years.

White people been hiding hockey from us for years bruh. This shit lit

"It was insane how many people reacted to these tweets," Hardy said. "I went away from Twitter to finish watching the end of the game and thousands and thousands of people were tweeting and retweeting me I couldn't keep up."


Hockey is too real.

This dude has like 3 teeth left. This shit is rough and violent

Hardy had a good eye for talent. Right away he saw that Patrick Kane was dangerous on the ice.

I don't know who this dude kane is but we gotta stop him.

Now a committed Blues fan, he started trash talking the Blackhawks.

@FlowsAndolini thanks.......blackhawks TRASH AS FUCK

That got noticed, too.

This motherfucker Tony got like 50 retweets off calling the hawks trash

Then something big happened.

He saw this play.

It hit off both postsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

It gave Hardy an idea for how the Blues could prevent the Blackhawks from evening the score in the dying minutes of the game.

Honestly why wouldn't the whole team just stand in front of the net for the last minuteπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Here's Hardy reacting to seeing a team pull the goalie for the first time in his life.

The goalie just said Fuck it and left?

Meanwhile, he did a little shopping for video games.

this is a steal!!!!! i save 2% i hope you can fight on the game like in real life

The game ended and Hardy's St. Louis Blues won 3-2, clinching the series. People started begging him to live-tweet the rest of the Blues games.

@soIoucity please tweet about hockey for the rest of the season

He promised to keep tweeting the rest of the Blues playoff run.

I will. I've been missing out. Lol

He also said he plans to watch game seven between Nashville and Anaheim Wednesday night.

"I'm hooked going to watch another game seven tomorrow," he said. "And the rest of the Blues games this playoff and next regular season."

Forget baseball.

I can't wait till the next game πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ baseball is so slow now

By the end of the night, he was a Twitter trend in Toronto.
