Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand came out of his Twitter shell Tuesday.
The Hammonds Plains hockey star has apparently had some summer fun, as he posted a picture of a turtle to the social media platform, simply stating “caught myself a new pet.”
It has created quite a stir among the Interwebs, with teammates and fans alike responding and reacting to Marchand’s new reptile friend.
“I like turtles … ” said Boston teammate Torey Krug, referring to a viral video featuring a kid dressed up as a zombie who said exactly that to a news anchor.
“You should name it,” said one fan, and hence forth came name suggestions, including “Hab,” “Herman” and “ShowUpInPlayoffsMarchand.”
By early Tuesday evening, Marchand’s Tweet had received 301 re-Tweets and 1,158 “favourites.”
