The Pittsburgh Pirates will be wearing Penguins jerseys to support their Steel City neighbors on their road trip to Milwaukee starting Thursday night, but Brandon Inge couldn’t wait until they boarded the buses to unleash his hockey spirit.
The veteran infielder, who has never played a game of hockey in his life, showed up to PNC Park prior to a game with the Cubs dressed head to toe in hockey gear, complete with rollerblades and a No. 66 Mario Lemieux sweater. When the game was halted for nearly two hours due to rain, Inge passed the time by skating laps around the clubhouse and playing goalie on a net set up in the center of the room.
“Just showing my support,” Inge told USA Today. “Man, I’m sweating already and all I did was a 40-second shift and had a goal scored on me. I don’t know how those guys do it.”
