During the 2007-08 Stanley Cup playoffs, uber Penguins’ fan Steven Mazefsky, like thousands of others, had a jersey customized.

” I had this special jersey made so that I could attempt to irritate the subject of my aggravation as much as possible from my vantage point right next to the visitors’ tunnel,” Season ticket holder Mazefsky told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette blog Empty Netters. “Last year, the mission was accomplished!”
