Former Opponents of The Patriots Share Stories Saying Fire Alarm Prank is Nothing New
The Pittsburgh Steelers players and coaches were simply trying to get rested up before their big AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots, but one rabid fan had other ideas.
At 3am on Sunday morning, a Pats fan went to the Steelers’ team hotel and pulled the fire alarm. Everybody had to be evacuated from the building, leading social media into a frenzy over #FireAlarmGate.
Former Patriots opponents took to Twitter and shared stories about how the same had happened to them when playing the Patriots.
