A Solar Bears fan sank an impossible shot last night and won $100k



Last night, Nick Giovanelli went to a minor league hockey game, and left with $100,000 in his pocket. 

In a video posted to Twitter by the Orlando Solar Bears, Giovanelli sinks a shot from over 100 feet away into a hole that's just slightly larger than the puck itself. 


The Solar Bears won in OT last night, but really, who cares? This guy walked out of the Amway Center with $100k!
