St. Louis sports fan Anthony Holmes accidentally went viral this week, after discovering hockey.

Earlier this week, the fan (who goes by Tony X on Twitter) caught everyone's attention as he praised the excitement of the sport while watching Game 7 of the St. Louis Blues' series with the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night (April 25).

While Holmes was instantly hooked, he detailed his confusion about the sport on Twitter.

"Yo deadass this the first time I've ever watched hockey and this sh*t has been LIT for these first 45 second," he tweeted. "White people been hiding hockey from us for years bruh. This sh*t lit," he later adds.

Check out some of the hilarious commentary about the game below.

Reports say Holmes went from barely over 1,600 followers on Monday to over 78,400 as of press time.

His sudden popularity has already landed him an appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday (April 28).
