By now, the story of Tony X. is probably a familiar one. The Twitter user took in a hockey game on TV and was so amazed by what he saw that he couldn’t help but share his joy with the world—and eventually make some predictions too. And thanks to his newfound fame, Tony, whose real name is Anthony Holmes, got a pretty great seat for the 3rd Game of the Blues-Stars series in St. Louis.

Did he tweet about it?

It’s hard not to like this guy:

And the Blues, naturally, got in on the fun:

I don’t think this is the last we’ll see of Mr. Holmes at Blues games.
