Penguins pay tribute to Pirates’ wild card win by playing wiffle ball on ice (video)

The Pittsburgh Penguins, who kick off its 2013-14 NHL season by hosting the New Jersey Devils at the CONSOL Energy Center on Thursday, celebrated the success of their in-city, professional sports-playing colleagues, the Pittsburgh Pirates, by playing a bit of wiffle ball. On skates. On the ice.

Hey, maybe it’s not as over-the-top — and consequently dangerous –as jumping off the Clemente Bridge into the Allegheny River, but it ain’t a bad way to pay tribute to the Pirates’ first postseason win since 1992 — a year Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr led the Pens to a Stanley Cup title, it is worth noting — either.
