Papa John’s Twitter account: Bruins or Penguins in Game 1 of Stanley Cup? (pic)
Better ingredients, better derps. Papa John’s. On Wednesday, before the first puck was dropped at United Center for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Pitt—Chicago Blackhawks, the obvious NHL fan operating the official Twitter account posed the above question in tweet form. Derp, indeed.
Then again, this comes from the same pizza delivery outfit that believes giving customers a pepperoncini along with their pie is a great idea.
An “our bad” tweet was offered up a short time later:
Whoops, thanks for catchin’ everyone! Meant Blackhawks! Who do you think is gonna take it?

You know, instead of blaming it on some faceless, nameless person, maybe “Papa” John Schnatter himself was at the controls of the company’s Twitter account on Wednesday. We all know how he gets amped up for big-time sporting events.
