TJ Oshie’s Wikipedia page hacked to call him ‘American Hero’
TJ Oshie became a household name on Saturday with his heroic performance in Team USA’s preliminary round win over Russia. After he scored the winning shootout goal (one of his four), someone immediately hopped on Wikipedia and hacked Oshie’s page. This was one of those fantastic hacks.
Although the page has already been edited, it briefly read “Oshie is a American Hero” below the first two sentences of his biography.
Thanks to international rules, Oshie was able to take all seven of the US’s shots after the opening round of the shootout ended in a tie. He buried four of them. Jonathan Quick came up huge in goal for the Americans to continue giving Oshie opportunities.
Personally, I think the American hero line should have stayed. What’s the harm in it?
