And somewhere out there, a friend or family member of the Penguins' fan with the backwards hat threw his (or her) phone at an inanimate object after watching this clip of the girl that potentially took their seat unintentionally rooting against the home team. That man that had to reach over to keep his significant other from embarrassing them as a couple is a man that was guilted into giving up his extra seat for love, and serendipitously we were able to watch as he spiraled helplessly into a hopeless place.
Just minutes into the opening game of the finals, and that poor bastard was already reminded of how stupid he was when he thought "eh, it can't be that bad. I'll just give her my old Malkin jersey and hope she doesn't ask too many questions". Right move for his sex life. Wrong move for his Stanley Cup sanity. I can't even begin to imagine the heights his irritability reached when Predators knotted the score and he was asked "how come they never go down to that end of the ice?" during the 33rd minute of 37 shotless minutes. Thank God the Penguins pulled one out despite themselves or I'm not sure that relationship should have survive the ride home, because playoff puck is stressful enough without having to explain jersey colors to someone who is merely a fan by association.
