Sure it has nothing to do with hockey, but today was one for the emotional record books — San Francisco became Gotham City for one 5-year-old boy and his Make-a-Wish dream to be Bat Kid. The story has engulfed the country as everyone stopped to watch the live video stream on the days events. A good resource for photos and everything Bat Kid can be found here.
If you need a hockey tie-in, quite a few players across the leagues got in on the #BatKid action today, following the young super hero’s day saving Gotham City.

The city of San Francisco coming together for Batkid is amazing. Just no chance of looking at all these picture and not smiling.
