You Will Never Know Joy Like This Adorable Little Kid at a Hockey Game

Apr 24, 2014

Hockey player Jordin Tootoo failed to make the Detroit Red Wings' playoff roster and was recently sent to the team's AHL affiliate, but he seems to be maintaining a pretty good attitude nonetheless.

While walking to the locker room during a recent game, Tootoo spotted a young fan and completely made the kid's night (or week, or probably his entire life) by letting him keep his hockey stick. Seriously, has anyone else ever known euphoria like this?

Meanwhile, though, another young fan (who you'll notice in the top right corner of the video) is just looking for a high-five, and Tootoo totally leaves him hanging. That boy's complete and utter despair kind of cancels out this other kid's unadulterated joy, reminding us once again that the world is a dark place and life is ultimately pointless and nothing really matters. Bye.
