Young Pirates fan displays glorious mullet at wild-card game

Thursday October 8th, 2015

The NL wild-card game on Wednesday night was mainly The Jake Arrieta Show, but there was one man in black and yellow who managed to steal the spotlight away from him, even if only for a moment. Unfortunately for Pittsburgh, it was not a Pirates player, but a young fan with a wondrous mullet.

The internet, of course, quickly took notice.

Pittsburgh fans should rest easy knowing that while they may no longer be in the playoffs, Mullet Kid has many years of elite level cheering left in that haircut.
