A new term has been worked into the Pittsburgh fan base vernacular recently.
What does it mean? Simple. You play, or root, for one Pittsburgh team -- you support the others.
This doesn't just go for the fans, but for the players as well. Whether it is Pittsburgh Pirates ace Gerrit Cole throwing down beers with regular fans heckling the Washington Capitals, or Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats and Vince Williams becoming regulars at Consol Energy Center. Pittsburgh isn't just another sports town.
With that said, when the Penguins punched their ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning, plenty of Steelers had a reaction on social media following the game. See what was said...and GO PENS!
