I recently tweeted a doodle of myself in a Hockey helmet that read:
"So any @NHL team that wants one new fan just has to respond to this tweet, and I will be a fan of your team. #BeMyTeam"
I also have been tweeting at teams I have been following the most ALL playoffs like the Capitals, Sharks, Canucks and Red Wings, and got ZERO response. No tweets to me, no retweets, not even a 'like'. I had given up on the 'Social' part of NHL Social Media.
Then I tweeted a "nice job" tweet to the Penguins on one of their playoff designs and they kindly responded. Well, then they found the above tweet and responded:
"Do we win?"
And in that moment I was claimed by the Penguins.
So here starts my journey as a Pens fan...
