The American people love sports so how better to connect with them and show that he is just like they are than to be a fan?
Congrats to T.J. Oshie and the U.S. men's hockey team on a huge win! Never stop believing in miracles. #GoTeamUSA -bo

The performance has given Oshie instant star status among non-hockey fans and even has some calling him a her--something he wasted no time responding to:
"The American heroes are the ones wearing camo". Feels good to be American an hear that from a professional athlete #USA #Sochi2014
