The story behind inspirational Blues superfan Laila Anderson © @UncleCharlie50 via Twitter The St. Louis Blues’ run to the Stanley Cup Final has been unexpected and inspiring, and their surprising journey is matched by the energy and passion of their superfan, Laila Anderson.

Anderson is battling a rare disease called HLH, a systemic inflammatory syndrome. The 11-year-old is a huge Blues fan and met one of her favorite players, Colton Parayko, during an event at Children’s Hospital St. Louis on Halloween. She’s developed a friendship with Parayko that’s continued since then, and she’s become an inspirational figure for the franchise.

As she’s battled her disease and gone through treatment, she says the Blues “have been my inspiration this whole time. And I kind of feel like I’m their inspiration a little. I hope that’s the case,” she told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Tim Anderson: I don't know baseball's unwritten rules

Tim Anderson: I don't know baseball's unwritten rules Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson has drawn national attention - and the ire of the Kansas City Royals - following a series of exuberant bat flips. Despite the controversy, he has no intention of toning things down for the sake of baseball's unwritten rules. In fact, Anderson doesn't even know what these rules are and was unaware his bat flips had violated them. "I don't really know the rules," Anderson said during an appearance on ESPN's "The Dan Le Batard Show" on Wednesday. "There's not any for me. I can't call them dumb because I don't have any. ... Nobody really came to me and said these are the rules, so I really don't know what they are.

She attended Game 3 of the Western Conference Final against the Sharks after receiving clearance from her doctor to finally leave the house after four months. She showed her emotion in this video that went viral:

Anderson was at Enterprise Center in St. Louis for Game 6 when they clinched. She met star athletes from the city’s other team, the Cardinals. Adam Wainwright shared a photo of him and Yadier Molina with Laila:

Anderson became so popular that she was shown on TV by NBC Sports Network during the game:

She celebrated with some of the Blues’ players after they clinched and even served as a reporter:

Anderson is planning to be in attendance for the Stanley Cup Final. And if you’re wondering whether her inspiration is hype or genuine, watch this video of Parayko talking about her.

To put into context just how improbable this Blues run is, the team was last in the NHL on January 3. Now they’ll be facing the Bruins in the Final, and they’ll have Anderson in their corner.

Superfan Nav Bhatia unites basketball fans — even the Toronto Raptors’ opponents.
Nav Bhatia, the Toronto Raptors “Superfan,” has long expressed his appreciation of sports and its power to unite people. So when an overzealous Milwaukee Bucks fan directed racist comments against him during the Eastern Conference final last week, Bhatia chose the peaceful route over confrontation. “I know we are in a heated series but I want everyone to know regardless of what one person has said Milwaukee and its fans are incredible!” he tweeted Friday. The Milwaukee fan had earlier called him annoying and insulted his body and his religious headgear (the Twitter account was deleted shortly after Brampton East MP Raj Grewal drew attention to it).
