Pittsburgh Pirates Love Daniel Bryan
Thanks to WZ reader Joseph G. for sending in the following report:
"Hey I was at the Pittsburgh Pirates game tonight against the Milwaukee Brewers, and during the 7th inning when the Bucs scored three runs to put them ahead for good (they ended up winning 11-2, with nine of those runs coming in the 7th and 8th innings), they played Flight of the Valkyries as a rallying video to get the crowd amped up. I do apologize, but I only caught the tail end of the video. There were also quite a few "YES!" chants at the game, of which I got involved in a few of them myself.
Apparently, the YES! chants, combined with the Pirates doing it in the visitors dugout in Cincinnati recently isn't a coincidence. According to this tweet from the Pirates cable affiliate Root Sports Pittsburgh, first baseman Gaby Sanchez is a big wrestling fan. It appears that the YES! chants might be replacing the two-year old "Zoltan" hand signal at Pirates games, maybe leading to Daniel Bryan throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at an upcoming Pirates game.
Speaking of WWE and first pitches, WWE Hall of Famer Mike Tyson threw out the ceremonial first pitch tonight for the Bucs. For someone pushing 50, he threw a fastball right into the strike zone. Pretty impressive."
Here is the tweet that Joseph was referring to, stating that Pirates first baseman Gaby Sanchez is a big wrestling fan:
