Former Volunteers star Josh Dobbs is in trouble with the Tennessee fan base.
During Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators, Dobbs was spotted wearing a Sidney Crosby jersey and lending his support to the Pens.
Of course, Dobbs was just embracing his new city after being drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers last month, but that didn’t make the photo any easier to see for Tennessee sports fans, especially after Dobbs received a standing ovation at a Predators game less than a month ago.
Let the guy live a little.
And hey, who doesn’t want to be accepted by their new fan base? Knowing how loyal Pittsburgh sports fans can be, showing up in a Crosby jersey and rooting on the Penguins in the Stanley Cup Final is going to score Dobbs some major brownie points with Steeler Nation.
They always say the backup quarterback is the most popular guy in town.
That guy becomes even more popular when he’s seen in public supporting Crosby and another Steel City franchise.
