Rihannaing: Senators fans bare their legs to rally team

Joel Auerbach

There have been stranger rally rituals ... but not many.

Ottawa Senators fans on Twitter have a new rally ritual, inspired by recent photos of pop star Rihanna wearing the team's jersey as a dress.

Warning: bare legs ahoy.

The craze all started with this tweet from SB Nation's own Radek Bonk's Mullet:

And soon, everybody was getting in on the act.

Men were Rihannaing:

Women were Rihanning:

Even pets were Rihanning:

The Senators scored a goal in the third period to tie their game against the Tampa Bay Lightning at two ... but the Lightning got the final goal of the game and won, as the #Rihannaing rally fell short.

Good try, though.
