Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan has been one of the best relievers in baseball this year. He also has an inordinate amount of Pirates pride, and he doesn’t mind showing it off, even if it means getting his toes painted as he did Wednesday:
Hanrahan says he was on a double date with his wife and the Resops (Chris Resop is another reliever on the Pirates), and their first stop was to a nail shop for manicures and pedicures. He then tweeted out those photos which we saw at Busted Coverage. The right foot obviously is in Pirates colors but he told Fan Phooey that the left is purple and pink to support prostate and breast cancer awareness. I’d rag on Hanrahan a little more if a) he weren’t pitching lights out this year and b) if we hadn’t already seen this by two other prominent athletes.
