That's gotta feel good. Last night, Jason DeRusha managed through Twitter to snag the attention of Pat Sajak, one of his idols while growing up.

Although Sajak is quite active on social media, it's not everyday that the host of one of the longest-running game shows*, and a legend of TV entertainment, gets in touch. Of course, it wasn't unprovoked. 

DeRusha had been watching Wheel of Fortune when he decided to broadcast a remark from his son, Seth.

"They're getting a little old," said the eight-year-old boy, referring to 67-year-old Sajak and ageless Vanna White.

Soon Sajak had jumped into the convo to make fun of himself:

The PDA continued on Instagram, where one commenter welcomed DeRusha into the "League of Awesomeness." Another said, "You win the Internet today."

As a boy growing up in Des Plaines, Illinois, DeRusha watched plenty of daytime television and became fixated on game shows -- an artificial reality where a wit reigns supreme but often at his own expense.
