Before heading over to the rink to watch Tyler Seguin play in a charity sled hockey game, one Dallas Stars fan decided to offer to bring the Stars center a burger.

Little did she know, Seguin would take her up on that offer. And it was almost more than she could handle.

The fan, Lindsey Dortch, tweeted at Seguin on Saturday afternoon asking if he would like a burger from In-N-Out:

Linds @1975linds

Yo @tseguinofficial you want a burger from in-n-out before the game?

Moments later, the hockey star responded:

Tyler Seguin @tseguinofficial

@lindsfromda1975 double double with just ketchup. Please 😊

An ecstatic Dortch picked up the food and then delivered it to the rink.

Tyler Seguin @tseguinofficial

@lindsfromda1975 ask everyone for Tom Holy

Unfortunately, Seguin was unable to eat the burger right away. Paralympic gold medalist Taylor Lipsett revealed that Seguin snacked on the burger during an intermission:

@tseguinofficial @lindsfromda1975 he got the burger and ate half of it between the 2nd & 3rd period on the bench next to me 😂😂😂

This adventure turned into an unforgettable experience for the fan.

“It was awesome,” Dortch said, per Joshua Friemel of the Dallas Morning News. “I didn’t really get to talk to him, but I wanted to talk to him after the game, but I couldn’t talk to him because I forgot how to speak for a second.”

Social media continues to turn fantasy into reality.
