As we all know, the Cubs’ clinched the NL Central last night.
What you may not know is that after the game, David Ross wanted to take in the Wrigleyville scene, so he went for a walk.
“It was pretty low key,” Ross said on the 670 The Score’s Mully and Hanley Show on Friday morning. “I took the train in yesterday to the field, so afterward I got a little workout in to try and let the crowd clear out and walked home. I walked about halfway home and just kind of poked my head into the window of some of the bars and would check the (Cardinals-Giants) score and saw they had pretty comfortable lead. Then once we clinched and St. Louis lost, I walked into the bar, threw a shot back and hopped in a cab the rest of the way home. It was pretty uneventful.”
And the kicker? He walked through Wrigleyville without being recognized!
“Last night, nobody knew,” he continued. “They had no idea. The bartender gave me a free shot. I guess he recognized me. I got a free shot from him and just kept on cruising. He actually took one with me, so it was a good little night, a good little alone thing I did. We’ll have a lot more celebrating going on after the game today.”
So what was Ross’ shot of choice?
“I went with Jameson,” he said. “I wanted to do a little Chicago treat. I couldn’t let a clinch go by without throwing down just a little bit of alcohol.”
Hey Rossy, next time, we’ll take a shot with you!!
