Julian Edelman proved once again that you can always don your favorite team's colors, even at work.

The New England Patriots receiver took the field for practice in a Boston Bruins jersey to show them support before Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday.

Edelman walked on the field in a jersey with teammate Phillip Dorsett's name and No. 13 on the back, presumably borrowing the fellow Patriots receiver's sweater to wear before the final day of minicamp.

Later, he offered his keys to a Bruins victory after practice on Twitter.

Edelman has been one of the many Patriots to support the Bruins' run to the Cup Final. He was Boston's  banner captain for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference First Round against the Toronto Maple Leafs, firing up the team during its 5-1 win. 

Quarterback Tom Brady, as the voice for Zdeno Chara's Instagram hype video, and coach Bill Belichick have also lent their likenesses to the Bruins run at the Cup.
