Pirates’ Pitcher Gerrit Cole Had A Great Time Heckling The Capitals And Pounding Beers Last Night

And hey, who wouldn’t have had a good time last night seeing the Penguins take a stranglehold 3-1 series lead over the Capitals with that electric OT win? If you’re representing Pittsburgh, that is…as Pirates’ righty Gerrit Cole was so ardently doing last night alongside Ryan Vogelsong.

The pitcher reigned down a chorus of boos on the visiting Caps before getting to work on his pounder…

And then started a “Let’s Go Pens!” chant…

Before being warned that maybe he had to tone it down, just a little.

A W is still a W, though. No doubt a rowdy Gerrit Cole being on the glass in a Crosby jersey was good inspiration for his fellow Pittsburgh athletes.
