The NHL Playoffs started and a yinzer from Pittsburgh who just got stabbed in the head with a screwdriver decided to wait for medical attention until after the Penguins game #BecauseItsTheCup. That earned him Fan of the Week from Rob Cressy and Benjamin Christensen on the Hats & Tats podcast. Also on the show they give out their Dad of the Week award to the Dad in Houston who wrote all 30 MLB teams declaring his son’s baseball allegiance as a free agent, plus the Nature Boy Ric Flair staring in When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong: Indiana edition.
