t's long been Blues or bust for Emily Rothschild.
The St. Louis native's bosom first appeared in the national spotlight during the series against the Dallas Stars when she was seated behind the opposing coach. It reappeared in a V-neck "Long Live the Note" shirt during Game 1 against the San Jose Sharks. Of course, Twitter took notice.
It may seem like harmless fun to admire the way she wears her love of team, but disembodied photos of one's cleavage are not exactly a compliment.
So does Miss #RallyBoobs have a face? I mean, not that that matters. But just wondering. https://twitter.com/BluesRallyBoobs/status/732047120824455169 …

Rothschild took to social media today to set the record straight.
"While at first it seemed innocent, a number of people around St. Louis and the country have decided to objectify Emily. We have decided as a family to make lemons into lemonade," she posted on her Facebook page.
The post noted that there has been some negative media attention directed toward Rothschild attendance during Blues playoff games.
"It seems the lack of attention was due to the Blues past lackluster playoff performance, but all of the sudden the intensified media coverage has started all kinds of rumors."
The last time the Sharks were in the conference finals, someone flashed their player while he was in the penalty box. Also, the last time the Sharks coach was in the Stanley Cup finals, someone put a porn star behind the bench.
The family has taken to the spirit of lemonade. They reached out to Susan G. Komen Missouri, a local, independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to save lives and end breast cancer.
The family created Team#RallyBoobs for the Susan G. Komen Greater St. Louis Race for the Cure on June 11. They are encouraging other fans to join their team and help raise money for a greater cause. ?
For the record, Rothschild isn't the first family member to go viral for her Blues fandom.
Rothschild will be at the game tonight, in the shirt that made her breasts Internet famous.
Her tank top underneath, however, will be a nod to the cause they've embraced.
