The Vegas Golden Knights Twitter Was On Fire Tonight So It Must Be Documented
The State of The Union may have been on this evening which means many folks flocked to social media to (1) either distract themselves from what was being said or (2) to Tweet about what was being said. If you happened to be in one of those camps then by golly, I hope you follow the Vegas Golden Knights.
They are playing the Flames in Calgary tonight, and considering that they have the hippest NHL Twitter account known to man, they asked all the right questions and made all the right references. It also helped to know that this man was going to be in attendance.
When the Excellence of Execution is in the house, who in the blue hell are you to doubt El Dandy? After being up 1 in the first period, they pretty much asked that question of the greatest submission hold ever to be locked in a squared circle.
Of course it wins in a landslide. Did Ric Flair ever lock Yokozuna in a Figure Four? I'd like to see evidence...
Oh, my mistake. That's a Sharpshooter. And that's Bret Hart locking Yokozuna in it. And Mr. Fuji being soulless by throwing salt in his eyes. My bad. Speaking of pictures:
All I'm saying is the Scotiabank Saddledome had better been illuminated pink for a solid two minutes as The Hitman's theme played. They follow that first intermission question with another doozy:
So let's keep tally: you've got Bret Hart, fantastic Canadian-born wrestling star of the 80s & 90s, and you got Cool Runnings, which also starred in the 90s and has Canadian great John Candy in it's title role. For Canadian hockey fans and anyone cognizant of the original Double Dare, this is a fantastic Twitter night for you to all share joy in. But, before any mention of Sanka Coffee, they give the singer-songwriter reference of all singer-songwriter references, by throwing us a curveball with Jim Croce:
Jim Croce was not Canadian and wasn't alive in the 90s, but great? Oh, he fits that bill ten-fold. He told many that you shouldn't tug on Superman's cape, and I deem it no coincidence that the Knights came back to win this hockey game 4-2. It was due to the mighty good vibes their Twitter handle were sending through the ether (and their talented hockey squad, that too.)
I also have to thank them for the reason I stumbled upon this music video of champions:
