Tampa Bay Lightning star Alex Killorn had reporters seeing double on Tuesday after he stepped into a press conference dressed exactly like a certain Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback.
The Lightning forward paid homage to his fellow Harvard graduate Ryan Fitzpatrick, who showed up to a postgame press conference on Sunday looking like a burlier, smarter Conor McGregor. (RELATED: HERE ARE THE BEST REACTIONS TO WEEK 2 OF NFL SEASON)
For a refresher, here’s QB Ryan Fitzpatrick dressed in Desean Jackson’s clothing:

Apparently the Buccaneers sent over a number 14 Fitzpatrick jersey to Killorn, and he was inspired to show some Tampa solidarity to get the fans riled up. Because if there’s one thing we know about Tampa, it’s that it’s one of the greatest sports towns in America — especially for hockey. People in Florida just can’t get enough hockey!!!
Enjoy this hype while you can, Tampa. You may have narrowly won against the Eagles this one time, but I 100-percent guarantee you’re not going to the Super Bowl. Or the Stanley Cup. And if either of those things happen, I will literally burn my Eagles attire and dress like both of these clowns for a week.
