Stars mascot does broom challenge, shows up competition with hockey stick

Victor E. Green must be some kind of magician to get this result

Sure, anyone can make a broom stand straight up. But how about a hockey stick?

Dallas Stars mascot Victor E. Green shared his broom challenge video, but instead used a hockey stick.

For the uninitiated, the broomstick challenge took over social media with the claim that on certain days, the Earth's gravitational force would allow a broom to stand upright on its bristles. (It is important to note that there is no evidence to suggest that a broom's ability to stand has anything to do with what day it is, some brooms stand, others do not).

So, while seemingly every other social media post showed off a balancing broom, the Stars mascot got the best of everyone by standing a stick upright by the blade.

How did he do it? Amazing!

Victor E. Green has always been 100 percent fuzzy but now it seems that he is also at least part magician.
