The speaker of the House is a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan and part owner of the publicly-owned team. But at a breakfast appearance before the Pennsylvania delegation Monday, Ryan was not afraid to pander to his audience, including dozens of ardent Pittsburgh Steelers fans.

The problem? He was in Cleveland!

"I want to win this election so darn badly that I am willing to do this!" Ryan shouted as he waved a yellow-and-black "Terrible Towel" waved by Steelers fans at NFL games. 

The crowd cheered. But surely there would have been a different reaction if he was in a room full of Browns fans.
