Justin Bieber Repped An Ontario Junior Hockey Team As The Best In The World
It's not just about the Leafs for JB.
By now, we all know how much Justin Bieber loves the Toronto Maple Leafs. But it seems they're not his one and only in the hockey world, at least judging from his social media. In fact, Justin Bieber's Owen Sound Attack photo had him repping the junior Ontario Hockey League team on Instagram as "the best in the galaxy."
Bieber shared the snap on his social media late on Monday night, March 2.
In the pic, the popstar, wearing an Attack jersey, stands next to the team’s assistant coach and assistant GM, Joey Hishon, per The Loop.
"Owen Sound attack, the best team in the world, no wait universe, actually no wait galaxy," reads the pic's caption.
As of the time of writing on Tuesday afternoon, the post, which was shared to Bieber's 129 million followers, had amassed nearly 1.8 million likes in a little over 12 hours.
Bieber grew up in Stratford, Ont., around two hours' drive south of Owen Sound.
While it's not clear exactly how the two men know each other, Stratford is also Hishon's hometown, per Kitchener Today.
So there you have it. It seems this is just a case of two Canadian guys who love a bit of puck.
The Attack certainly seemed thrilled by a shoutout from the Biebs.
The team also shared the snap on their Twitter account, and later cheekily looked to cash in on the promo.
"Want to rep the 'Best Team in the Galaxy'?" asks a tweet from the team, alongside a link to the club store.
It's unclear whether getting Bieber's name on the back of the replica jerseys is a legit option.
The team might want to consider making it one, though, judging by the response to the photo.
"Justin Bieber in an Attack jersey is the craziest thing to happen to Owen Sound since last week when it snowed," wrote one tweeter.
Another fan disagrees, though.
"Bieber wearing an Attack jersey is the biggest thing to happen to Owen Sound since they lifted the ban on prohibition in 1972," said another tweeter, who appears to have a slightly longer memory.
Anyway, it makes a change from Bieber showing his love for the Leafs.
Back in December,for a little shootaround. And he loves the Leafs so much, he's even got , too.
And his Leafs BFF Auston Matthews revealed this week that the musician's home is "."
Now, though, it looks like Toronto's team will have to share JB's affections.
