The Pittsburgh Pirates have become everyone’s darling team this season. They’ve exorcised 20 years worth of demons and are well on pace to make the postseason for the first time since 1992. We all love an underdog story, and there is not another in baseball that rivals that of Pittsburgh’s.
No matter how much I gush, this team keeps finding new ways to win me all over again. Most recently, the below video made by All Star center fielder Andrew McCutchen and the MLB Fan Cave, a tribute to the life work of megastar actor Tom Cruise as Hollywood prepares for the release of Cruise’s upcoming movie Jack Reacher.
Who knew McCutchen had such acting chops?! Check it out.
As if we needed another reason to love the Pirates this year. I almost spit my cereal out when McCutchen yelled “I LOVE BLACK PEOPLE!”
