When Gregory Campbell broke his leg blocking a shot and then heroically stuck out the final minute of a penalty kill during Wednesday night’s Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, it was an inspiration to many, including his Bruins teammates, who went on to win in double overtime in their fallen forward’s honor. Apparently, that inspiration wasn’t exempt from Twitter hashtags. Less than 24 hours after Campbell’s act of heroism, the social media site was still buzzing about it, and it was the hashtag appropriately titled “#ImGregoryCampbell” that was at the heart of it all. People were using the hashtag to describe their own personal — and usually ironic — accounts of toughness and heroism. Some have missed the mark in terms of funniness, but others, like one from the Dallas Stars, have been pretty hilarious. Check out a collection of some “#ImGregoryCampbell” tweets below. Had Sean Avery on our team. #ImGregoryCampbell— Dallas Stars (@DallasStars) June 06, 2013 Watched an episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Still have both eyeballs. #ImGregoryCampbell— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) June 06, 2013 I once listened to @kevinwalshTV talk about hair product for an hour straight & lived to tell about it #ImGregoryCampbell— Joe Haggerty (@HackswithHaggs) June 06, 2013 Listened to Pierre McGuire call an entire game without muting the TV. #ImGregoryCampbell— Lindsay (@lindsayw13) June 06, 2013 Rebroadcast/reproduced pictures and accounts of a game without express written consent of Major League Baseball. #ImGregoryCampbell— Adam Proteau (@Proteautype) June 06, 2013 Asked John Tortorella a question. #ImGregoryCampbell— Allyson Gronowitz (@AllysonGrono) June 06, 2013 I once walked into a 7/11 without shoes or a shirt, and still got service. #ImGregoryCampbell #bruins— Ian Tasso (@Tasso_SPORTS) June 06, 2013
