No doubt the Pittsburgh Penguins and their fans felt great after taking a 1-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup Finals by defeating the Nashville Predators in Game 1, by a score of 5-3.

That feeling died a little bit on Wednesday after Justin Bieber decided to jump on the Penguins bandwagon.

The Canadian pop star took to Instagram showing himself wearing a Penguins jersey Wednesday ahead of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Bieber was spotted cheering on the Toronto Maple Leafs in their Game 6 loss to the Washington Capitals in the first round, which resulted in their elimination from the playoffs.

Earlier this year, he was spotted partying with the New York Giants WR corps just before their playoff game, and we all remember the result of that one.

A few other examples:

1. New York Knicks

In 2014, Bieber was in attendance for the Knicks’ opener against the Bulls. The final score: A 104-80 blowout win for Chicago.

2. Spain’s World Cup team

Back in 2014, Bieber was snapped with a Spain jersey. When the World Cup came around, the national team and defending champions didn’t make it out of the group stage.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers

In 2014, Bieber showed up to a Steelers bible study the Saturday before a game against the New York Jets. Pittsburgh came into that Sunday matchup absolutely red-hot (Ben Roethlisberger had thrown 12 touchdown passes in his last two games), but they somehow fell to the Jets. Steelers fans blamed the Bieber Curse.
