Pirates pitchers Joe Musgrove and Steven Brault tailgated with fans at the Steelers game

There's always been a really close relationship between the Pirates and their football-playing brethren across the parking lot. We've seen members of the Steelers roll up to PNC Park many times to cheer on the Pirates, and Pirates legend Andrew McCutchen  even if his days in Pittsburgh are done.

On Sunday, a pair of current Buccos, pitchers Joe Musgrove and Steven Brault, not only attended the Steelers' game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but also went the extra mile and tailgated with Pittsburghers before the game.

Both Musgrove and Brault were born and raised in San Diego, where the Chargers used to call home before relocating to Los Angeles before the 2017 season. It certainly looks like Musgrove and Brault have ditched their Charger fandom and adopted the Steelers instead, and the two buddies definitely enjoyed immersing themselves among the Pittsburgh faithful.

The biggest shock of the outing was that Musgrove and Brault weren't joined by fellow Pirates starter Trevor Williams, who has struck up a friendship with Los Angeles Chargers defensive back Trevor Williams.
