It’s party time in St. Louis as the Blues are champions for the first time ever, and fans of the team took to Twitter to celebrate on Wednesday night.

Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal and Boston Celtics small forward Jayson Tatum, both St. Louis natives, couldn’t help but be thrilled for their hometown club.

Recently retired NFL defensive end Chris Long was also over the moon for the Blues. Long played for the then-St. Louis Rams from 2008-2015, before moving on to the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles and it’s clear the Blues made a strong impression upon him.

Tony X, who took the internet by storm by tweeting about his newfound Blues fandom in 2016, basked in the glory.

The Blues also received the well-earned praise of their peers.

St. Louis is already taking to the streets.

We assume Jon Hamm and Nelly are having the time of their lives as well. What a season for the worst-to-first Blues.
