The support-other-New York-teams trend continues. This time, however, the Bronx becomes one of the spots.

A familiar face visited Yankee Stadium Wednesday in New York Jets interior defensive lineman Quinnen Williams.

Williams, 23, is a man Jets fans know well, but he hasn’t been around much as of late.

Recovering from breaking a small bone in his foot that required surgery, early this offseason, Williams hasn’t been healthy to take part in the team’s mandatory minicamp earlier this month. It also meant he didn’t have the opportunity to sit next to the mullet (otherwise known as Dan Feeny) at The Barn, as one of the two (or perhaps both men) smashed beers in three seconds or less.

Interestingly, trouble seems to be brewing in paradise—despite Williams’s happy demeanor in the above photo.

Mekhi Becton tweeted Big Q-related words shortly following the Yankees tweet that featured Williams at Yankee Stadium.

Although there was no direct evidence to suggest Becton was having a little fun with his teammate—as it related to his Yankee Stadium trip—the mystery was solved when Williams added to the thread.

It appears Becton wanted to see the Bronx as well. Perhaps Step Brothers 2.0 can reconcile soon.

In other New York sports-related news, Long Island native Greg Van Roten celebrated the New York Islanders’ thrilling 3-2 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the eastern conference finals.

Despite the fans throwing garbage onto the ice after the victory, Isles fans should feel good right about now. Thanks to a Scott Mayfield cross-check, Bolts’ superstar Nikita Kucherov’s status for Game 7 is unknown. He left Game 6 early via injury and couldn’t return.

Van Roten and fellow Isles fans went nuts once Anthony Beauvillier capped a comeback win that saw their team overcome a two-goal deficit.

Naturally, Van Roten was there to witness it live.

Game 7 for the right to play for the Stanley Cup is set for Friday at 8 p.m. ET down in Tampa. One Islanders win is all that separates them from their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since 1984.
