This Hockey Fan Is Crying for Reasons That Will Leave You in Tears, Too

Subscribe to TheFW on

This may be the coolest thing you’ll ever see at a hockey game.

Sam Tageson, 17, is a die-hard San Jose Sharks fan who’s suffered from a heart condition since birth. Even though doctors have advised him not to play hockey, he has laced up the skates since he was six years old and was rewarded earlier this week with a one-day contract with the Sharks.

In addition to practicing with the team, Sam got to skate onto the ice with the players before a game,becoming the first non-player to emerge from the famed shark head. As you can see, it all overwhelmed him.

We have a feeling it may overwhelm you, too, after watching this.
