Tony was trying to find the cardinals but got distracted by the St. Louis blues taking on the Chicago blackhawks and decided to live tweet the experience and here are some of the highlights from his tweeting. This is the first time I've ever watched hockey and this Has been lit for these first 45 seconds. And then he went on to say, what the bleep is a power play? I have a asked that myself, Tony. Then he got into the match when he said, I don't know who this dude Kane is but we got to stop him. And then finally asking this very important question, honestly, why wouldn't the whole team just stand in front of the net for the last minute? And, Tony -- That's great. A lot of people -- he became an internet sensation and joining us live from St. Louis. Tony, how are you, my friend? I'm good. I'm good, Mike. How are you doing. I'm doing great. What do you make of all this because you went from 1600 Twitter followers to over 58,000 now. It's been crazy. I didn't think it would be this big about me just tweeting about a hockey game. It's a bit crazy. It's not only tweeting about it but the way in which you tweeted about it. Did you ever find out what a power play is? I did, basically when a team gets a penalty, they got to send somebody off and basically the other team has an advantage on the players so that's why they call it a power play. I like how you explained that in layman's terps. So many people out there had no idea. Nice how he has this perspective as a first-time watcher and makes it clear, the whole goalie thing. May have a future in commentating hockey games. How is it that you never saw hockey before. I never gave it a chance. I was a big football fan, big baseball fan but I never gave hockey a chance. And now? Oh, yeah, I'm going to watch it. We have a big surprise for you. St. Louis blues NHL hall of famer Brett hull sent you a message. Hey, Tony, Brett hull, glad you finally jumped on the blues bandwagon and I hope to see you on Tuesday night for your first blues game. So now you're going to the game live, Tony. Congratulation, my friend. Are you going to live tweet from the game? I'm going to do a little bit. It's going to be as much as I'm doing at home.
