The Pittsburgh Pirates are big on supporting the Pittsburgh Penguins when it comes to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The team had plans to wear Penguins jerseys as they began a road trip to Milwaukee and Detroit to support their city’s hockey team, but third baseman Brandon Inge took it a bit further on Thursday.

Inge brought some humor to the locker room on Thursday morning as he not only came to work wearing a Mario Lemieux jersey, but a helmet, pads, and gloves while on roller blades.

It may be for Philly’s most heated rival, but fans have to give Inge props for dressing in full gear just to support the hockey team.
