Watch Blues Fans Go Berserk On Local TV

Last night, the St. Louis Blues advanced to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 49 years. They clinched at home with a 5-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

I took a deep dive through St. Louis local television news to see how their fans were reacting to the big win and found a little bit of everything: Screaming fans, a guy doing finger guns in the background, exhortations to play “Gloria” and Laila Anderson, an 11-year-old girl with a systemic inflammatory syndrome who has become an inspiration for the team.

Also, there’s a fan who says “oh my God” a lot—which makes sense. It has been a while.
