With the “Yellowstone” days away, the show dropped a thirsty black-and-white picture of Cole Hauser, and even star Kevin Costner took note.

Costner, who plays John Dutton in the Paramount+ series, snuck on the Instagram feed to say, “Alright, Rip.” 

In an artistically placed bathtub/horse trough, Hauser was outside with water streaming down his face. Maybe it was at the Yellowstone Ranch, but one thing’s for sure. It was the kind of pinup shot any female “Yellowstone” fan could love.

The star’s comment got 683 likes in two hours and some reactions. One fan clapped back, “Your turn.”

The 66-year-old Costner was quick to replay, saying, “I don’t know if I can work a horse trough quite like @colehauser22.”

The star might not have his “Dances With Wolves” figure, but I’m sure he could still sell a poster or two.

Costner’s Got ‘Yellowstone’ Fan In Yearwood

Recently, Trisha Yearwood showed off her “Yellowstone” camo trucker hat.

Hmm. Did Yearwood go to a Nashville, Indiana concert this week?

She did! The country music star thanked hubby Garth Brooks and Costner’s Modern West band for a good time on Instagram. It appears that Brooks and Yearwood had some date night fun, as she used the hashtag #datenight.

Costner, Ripken The Subject Of Upcoming Podcast

An upcoming podcast will connect former Baltimore Orioles star Cal Ripken and Costner in a rumor from the late 1990s.

Longtime die-hard Orioles fans Sam Dingman and Mac Montandon are delving into the connection between the two men from 25 years ago in a narrative podcast called “The Rumor.” 

According to the Baltimore Sun, a partial electrical failure at Oriole Park at Camden Yards affected a bank of lights leading to the cancellation of an Aug. 14, 1997, Baltimore-Seattle baseball game.

Frustrated fans and players left the game, but Ripken’s Ironman streak remained intact. 

Part of the rumor that day was that Costner and Ripken’s wife, Kelly, were caught by Cal Ripken in some meeting. Ripken got into a fight with Costner before heading to the ballpark.

However, Ripken was either injured or in police custody, and the rumor said that the lights went out, and Ripken’s streak stayed going. 

The 61-year-old Ripken played 2,632 straight games during his career. His major league playing career lasted from 1981 to 2001.

“It’s about fandom, conspiracy, rumor, innuendo and how much the truth matters,” executive producer Peter Moses told the Washington Post. 

Moses hopes fans can learn for themselves if the rumor is true or not.

“This has been a really cool project for all of us to kind of ask those questions of ourselves as we’re making it, and I hope that those conversations that we’ve had are something that people can connect with outside of whether this rumor is true.”
