No, we’re not talking about Michael Scott. We’re talking about Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly’s latest Twitter feud in light of the Stanley Cup Final.

Beesly, portrayed by Jenna Fischer in The Office, is a die-heart Blues fan, having grown up in St. Louis. Her counterpart Halpert, portrayed by John Krasinski, is all in on the Boston Bruins, his home team.

The St. Louis-Boston rivalry goes back to their Office filming days, although they couldn’t really take it to social media like they have recently. The two battled it out with some co-workers in the 2004 World Series between the Red Sox and Cardinals.
