If you happened to watch SportsCenter on Thursday morning, you might have found yourself questioning if that was the Lightning Astronaut in the background waving a Lightning flag, dancing and making fake golf swings while the anchors talked about Phil Mickelson.

Below you can watch Malektronic owner Ben Malek along with the Astronaut as they discuss the Bolts run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and how the Astronaut became a thing at Lightning games.
