Gerrit Cole cheers the Penguins, boos the Capitals

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Gerrit Cole was in the front row for yesterday's Capitals/Penguins game, and there has been a bunch of fun videos of him having a good time. (And for anyone wondering at what you're about to see, Cole doesn't pitch until Sunday, so I don't see any problem with him going out and having some fun.)

First, from the Pirates' official site:

Now here's Cole booing the Caps. It amuses me that Cole, a pro athlete himself and surely no stranger to getting booed, evidently has no problem with doing this kind of thing.

Of course, not everyone was amused. Here's an usher telling Cole to calm down.

Most of what's come out has understandably focused on Cole's presence, but teammate Ryan Vogelsong was there too, as you can see here.

So there you have it. Professional athletes -- they're just like us.
