Bieber touches Cup, Twitter explodes
Tuesday began bad enough for Justin Bieber, what with the NHL's resident King Goon blaming him for interrupting the players union's meetings.
@justinbieber I'm a fan of you being Canadian &even ur music but ur killing our NHLPA meetings with ur fan club screaming outside the hotel— Zenon Konopka (@ZenonKonopka) July 9, 2013
But it's what he did Tuesday night that may make him a marked man in every NHL arena . . . and, gulp, perhaps even his native Canada. You see, he was in Chicago for a concert . . . in the Blackhawks' home arena. You remember what the Blackhawks just won, don't you?

Yup, that happened. And as you can imagine, hockey fans, not exactly cut from the Belieber cloth, went off.

Justin Bieber has touched the Stanley Cup more times than some of the best hockey players to ever live. Fury.— Josh Batelli (@Josh_Batelli) July 10, 2013

Serious question: Bigger embarrassment to Canada—Bieber with the Cup or Bieber with Harper? JUDGE. http://t.co/TC6LDYROLL— Sean Gentille (@seangentille) July 10, 2013
the stanley cup has been tainted by justin bieber.— Rocky Tsiveriotis (@RockyTBoa) July 10, 2013
Blackhawks fans better hope this guy is right.
Adding to the furor, Bieber actually stepped on the Blackhawks' logo, an absolute no-no.
What's more, he did it in Chicago. You know what happens when you cross the wrong people in Chicago.
