Kevin Spacey Goes To Hockey Game in a “Spacey in Space” Sweatshirt


Kevin Spacey just gave the fans of the Florida Panthers a special treat at last night’s hockey game. He not only wore a “Spacey in Space” sweatshirt but he came to the game wearing a mask of himself. For those of you who have no clue why the House of Cards star did this, then let’s give you the back story so this all makes sense. And by the way, even if there wasn’t a back story this would still be awesome. It all started when Florida Panthers MVP Aleksander Barkov was given his “hero” award, a recent hockey tradition. That award was a sweatshirt featuring Spacey in space.

For some mysterious reason, Spacey – or, more specifically, Spacey’s head floating in space – has become a new good luck charm for the Panthers and their fans. And Spacey not only accepts this as reality, but as evidenced by last night’s showing, he’s clearly embraced it.

The funny this is that no one actually knows or will even tell Kevin Spacey himself how “Spacey in Space” became the team’s virtual mascot. When Panthers player Erik Gudbranson was asked by the Miami Herald, he remained tight-lipped. Barkov claimed he was in the dark himself. But the meme picked up steam. According to Buzzfeed, after Spacey himself gave his blessing the Panthers began handing out spacey masks for fans to wear at the game, creating the illusion of a sea of sly-looking Kevin Spaceys cheering on the Panthers.

When Spacey himself pulled his very meta stunt at the Panthers and Detroit Red Wings game in Sunrise, Florida, on Saturday the crowd went wild.

Does Kevin Spacey even like hockey? Who cares? This is awesome.
