-- Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly Halpert had a strong bond as they progressed from friends to husband and wife in The Office but the upcoming Stanley Cup Final between the Bruins and the Blues might tear them apart.

Well, the actors at least.

It’s safe to assume Jim and Pam might have been Flyers fans and Jim might have even represented some of the players through Athleap, but the actors are on different sides of next week’s series.

John Krasinski, who is from Massachusetts, tweeted out a tweet he received from someone showing Jenna Fischer, who is from Indiana, from earlier this month getting Blues fans pumped up for Game 7.

“Uh oh…,” Krasinski tweeted.

Fischer also tweeted about it a few times and posted it on Instagram.

-- Tom Brady did not have to eat a strawberry after James Holzhauer won Monday’s Jeopardy game but now Holzhauer is upping the ante.

Holzhauer tweeted a new bet to Brady on Tuesday afternoon involving another food the quarterback does not eat. 

Brady famously does not eat tomatoes because they are night shades.

He hasn’t responded to Holzhauer yet but the Jeopardy contestant kept checking his Twitter to see if Brady took him up on the bet.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "[Tom Brady> has an athlete that's going to compete and he has an athlete that can go up and get [the ball>. And he's a lot faster than people think. He returned kickoffs and punts this year. He wasn't just a receiver. Again, I definitely think he's going to be a 1,000-yard receiver as a rookie. I definitely think he's probably going to win NFL Rookie of the Year.” -- Travelle Gaines, N’Keal Harry’s trainer, on Harry
