Old Spice guy reveals Jets fandom, teases towel-only Whiteout appearance
Isaiah Mustafa tweets supports for Winnipeg Jets during playoff bid; reveals fandom, Whiteout plans
Winnipeg Jets fans might want to keep their eyes peeled for The Old Spice guy donning just a towel at Saturday's game.
Isaiah Mustafa, known for being ridiculously handsome and starring in several ads for Old Spice, is a Jets fan.

The actor tweeted his fandom on Wednesday — revealing a bracket that put the Jets on top in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
"Here's my #NHLBracketChallenge @NHL. Who are you picking??? (@LAKings always in my heart) I'll take @NHLJets #GKG," he tweeted.
Mustafa said since the Los Angeles Kings are out, he's Jets all the way.
"Hey @NHLJets, since my beloved @LAKings are resting up for next year, my fanship is on loan to you for the duration of #StanleyCupPlayoffs," he tweeted.
And perhaps the most titillating of tweets: what he plans to wear for a Winnipeg Jets Whiteout.
"So @NHLJets, I'm gonna need a Byfulglien jersey and... I can just wear my towel for the #Winnipegwhiteout, right? #StanleyCupPlayoffs"
For the uninitiated: Jets fans wear all white to playoff games, a tradition that started before the team relocated from and back to the Prairie city.
A spokesperson for the Winnipeg Jets said they've been in touch with Mustafa over Twitter, and the team is thrilled to get support from any fan.
