Generally speaking, the majority of Pittsburgh sports fans aren’t overly fond of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
New England sports a spotless 3-0 record against the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game since Brady entered the league in 2000. That’s going to stick in the Steel City’s craw.
Now the four-time Super Bowl MVP has found another way to enrage Steelers supporters.
Philip Pritchard, one of the gentlemen charged with following the Stanley Cup around all summer, recently tweeted a photo of Brady standing next to the NHL’s top prize. The same Cup that the Pittsburgh Penguins hoisted last month.

Pittsburgh fans responded to Pritchard’s post with angst.
Don’t let that cheating punk touch it! He’s bad luck & if the Penguins don’t win it next year we are clearly going to blame this moment!

Uhh…NO. How in God’s name did this piece of [?] get to touch the Cup on the Pens’ watch?
