Sad little T.J. Oshie fan gets surprise call, asks about his swimming pool (Video)
St. Louis Blues fan Libby Lu captured the nation's attention after having an epic meltdown over T.J. Oshie being traded to Washington. We felt her pain.
(Admit it, you've been there. I melted down as a 16-year-old when Teemu Selanne was traded from Anaheim to San Jose.)
The five-year-old, clad in a St. Louis Blues jersey (and ironically, a red, white, and blue bow), could not be more adorable as she and her dad took to Sportscenter for an interview Sunday morning. When asked if she could pose one question for T.J. Oshie, what would she ask, she responded coyly:
"Does he have a swimming pool?"
Commence heart melting as the anchor brings in Oshie on the phone and the intense swimming pool discussion begins.
If that doesn't give you the warm fuzzies, then your heart is two-sizes too small, Mr. Grinch.
Got to love the attention span of a five-year-old. By the end of the interview, she was elsewhere, even as Oshie promised her free swag.
