After the St. Louis Blues won their first Stanley Cup on Wednesday, more than a few celebrities who call the Gateway City home - and even one legendary English rocker with a tenuous connection to the team - had nothing but love for the Blues.

Ozzy Osbourne, the Black Sabbath frontman who shared a picture of himself in a Blues jersey before the start of Game 7 later sent out a message when the Blues secured the win.

Tweet from @OzzyOsbourne: Congrats @StLouisBlues on your #StanleyCup win!

Osbourne was born in England and resides in Los Angeles. The only connection he has to the team is an infamous mugshot from a 1984 arrest. In it, he is wearing a Blues jersey. 

Osbourne shared that photo a few days ago.

Tweet from @OzzyOsbourne: Let���s go @StLouisBlues!

Many more with a stronger connection to the city had congrats to share with the Blues.

Two-time Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown, a native of St. Louis, was pumped up for the Blues victory.

Another St. Louis native, comic Cedric the Entertainer, took to Instagram to celebrate his team.

Perhaps no one is more vocally St. Louis than rapper Nelly. The "Country Grammar" performer shared a pair of videos on Instagram showing he couldn't hold back his excitement.

Blues superfan Andy Cohen of Bravo TV was at the game watching live and shared some post game reaction.

And of course, the social media account for the late singer of the Blues victory song "Gloria," Laura Branigan, run by her former manager Kathy Golik, had to weigh in.
