For most sports fans, a relationship with a team is a lifelong commitment. Justin Bieber is not one of these fans.
Generally, you don't want to be labeled a bandwagon fan. A perennial loser suddenly transforms into a potential dynasty, and their fan base grows exponentially across the country over night. Hopping on the bandwagon deservedly gets you publicly shamed and openly scorned. But credit Justin Bieber for wearing the label proudly.
Recently scrutinized for a selfie he posted sporting a Penguins jersey, Bieber—who professes to be a big Maple Leafs fan—took to Twitter to defend his decision to rock a Pens uniform.
While he's certainly not the first megastar to whimsically leap frog from team to team, he's among the most shameless to do so. On a certain level, though, you have to respect the flagrant superficiality of Bieber's fandom.
Regardless, as the Pens gear up to face the Predators in Game 5 this Thursday with the series tied 2-2, they can rest assured that the Biebs is pulling for them...unless the Preds send him a cooler jersey in the meantime.
