Astronaut fan graces Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers game

Wednesday March 25th, 2015

The great thing about sports is that anything can happen in a game. Apparently, anyone can happen at a game, too. 

Someone in full astronaut regalia showed up at the Tampa Bay Lightning-Florida Panthers game Tuesday. 

Sure, Florida Panthers games can get weird in the stands sometimes, but this is a first for an NHL game as far as we're concerned. 

Maybe the astronaut is a good luck charm for the Lightning. Tampa Bay won the game, 4-3.
