It doesn't get much better than this. 

Sam Tageson, a lifelong San Jose Sharks fan, was able to fulfill his dream Tuesday, as he signed a one-day contract with the team. The 17-year-old practiced with the team and skated through the shark head before San Jose's game with the Florida Panthers. 

According to the Contra Costa Times, Tageson was born with a  heart condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, leaving him with only two heart chambers instead of four. Despite the advice of his doctors, he has played hockey since the age of six.
