St. Louis Blues celebrate viral sensation Tony X. at Game 3

Viral sensation Tony X. received a hero’s welcome at Scottrade Center on Tuesday. He mugged for photos, was videoed by the St. Louis Blues, shown on the jumbotron, and tweeted out a few observations from the contest. 

It was reportedly the first live NHL game for Anthony Holmes (aka Tony X. on Twitter) who became a social media hero during Game 7 of the Blues’ first-round series against the Chicago Blackhawks. Holmes became such a big deal that he was interviewed on Good Morning America.

There, Blues vice president Brett Hull offered Holmes tickets to Tuesday night’s Game 3 between St. Louis and the Dallas Stars.

The Blues paid tribute to Holmes at the first TV timeout, showing him on the jumbotron, which included one of his signature tweets from Game 7.

Holmes also tweeted a photo from his seat before the start of the game.

Then a video before player introductions.

The Blues also showed Holmes cheering with a close-up video.

Also, it appeared that Holmes listened to the please of sniper Vladimir Tarasenko, asking him to wear Tarasenko’s No. 91.

St. Louis may need to bring Holmes back for Game 4 considering the way Game 3 has gone with him in the building. Almost two periods through the contest the Blues are up 4-1 on the Dallas Stars.
