Election hero Ken Bone likes politics, but also hockey

Well, it seems like everyone has a Ken Bone opinion these days, which is to say that everyone loves Ken Bone.

It’s hard not to like the guy considering the earnest way in which he has grabbed his newfound global fame by the horns while clearly staying true to himself. His Twitter is a pretty solid follow. These types of social media sensations can burn out quickly — just ask DJ Khaled, Harambe and Pizza Rat — but Ken appears to be a non-fictional character who really likes politics, and also likes hockey.

Wednesday night, I was faced with my first real Bone dilemma, when I realized his favorite hockey team, the St. Louis Blues, hates my favorite hockey team, the Chicago Blackhawks.

I’m from Chicago. Ken Bone is from southern Illinois, which is basically Texas to everyone living in the city. We can agree to disagree on this one. It’s not egregious. It’s too late at night here to get riled up. The Blackhawks did lose 5–2 and that was sad.

But anyway, what I mean is…to all those undecided fans out there, just make an informed decision. That’s all I ask of you this hockey season. Learn your facts. If you go on Twitter right now, you may learn something important.

Election Day is November 8.
