This super cute photo of a Wild player waving to a little kid is ridiculously viral
It didn't seem like much -- just 6' 3", 221 lbs. Wild Forward Charlie Coyle acknowledging a young fan who had tapped the glass to get his attention.
But the boy's reaction was incredibly adorable, and yesterday the moment went viral -- appearing on the front page of Reddit as well as NHL.com.
At one point the before-and-after photo set was among the top stories on Reddit, which looked like this:
What a reaction!
The wave happened during Sunday's game, and it started to go viral after several people tweeted after seeing the clip during intermission on FOX Sports North, according to Ryan Stanzel, Digital Content Manager for the Wild.
"The best part, to us, was how it went viral before the Wild even got involved," Stanzel told City Pages shortly after last night's game. "To watch it grow was spectacular."
