Just a heads up that Zoë will be reporting LIVE from the belly of the beast tonight, aka a sports bar literally steps from Fenway Park as the Boston Red Sox play the potential World Series clincher. The Pens-Bruins game doesn't start until 8pm which strikes us as horribly unwise. She will be wearing a Joe Vitale shirt in enemy territory.
The Bruins are kind of good. The Pens have played more games and are, as we all know, on a losing streak. This is the first time the teams meet since That Thing Happened in the playoffs.
The deeper question: if Zoë wears a Penguins shirt to people recognize her as an ally to the Red Sox cause because clearly a Pittsburgh fan wants to take out the Cards, or do they still see her as The Enemy?
Follow PuckHuffers and zoeclaire_ on Twitter for updates and expect a recap god knows when. We still don't really care about baseball that doesn't call PNC Park home but god damn do we like a party. Also, fuck the Cardinals. Also, there's nothing to get the rage adrenaline pumping like being in a sum of all fears situation with a bunch of Boston sports fans. Consider it like recreational drug use but without the drugs.
"You know, I’m extremely fortunate that I met a Russian girl in America. It’s difficult to look at a lot of the local women. You get the feeling that just don’t take care of themselves! There are an awful lot of heavyset ones. But Russian girls have nice trim figures. I couldn’t imagine myself being with an American girl.” - Semyon Varlamov, 2009, "OK!" Magazine
