Deadspin’s Barry Petchesk wrote the following article. It is hilarious and also really sad.

“As they do each year, EA Sports are conducting a fan vote to select the cover player for NHL 14. It’s come down to Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, probably in line for the Vezina, and Devils legend Marty Brodeur. Fans can vote on Twitter with a specific hashtag. Sometimes this goes very wrong.

5. His very first tweet was to Brodeur, asking him how to vote.

4. That tweet was sent to a fake Martin Brodeur account. 

3. He voted for Brodeur 248 times, one right after the other, for more than two hours.
