File this under things that make you go "hmmm." Speaker of the House Paul Ryan waved the well-known (and well-hated in Cleveland) Pittsburgh Steelers "Terrible Towel" while speaking to the Pennsylvania delegation Monday morning. 

Ryan is a huge Green Bay Packers fan, but said he was waving the towel because he wants to "win this election so damn bad."

Ryan was speaking to the Pittsburgh delegation, so the towel makes sense to that extent, but this is Browns town.
