Look at Lance McCullers Jr. stepping up to be the postgame speech guy for the Astros! You'd expect Altuve or maybe Verlander, but it's McCullers taking the podium and speaking to the guys before they pop the bubbly. And idk about you but as a baseball fan I'm pumped up from that speech. He does the cliche "don't take this for granted" and "this group is special" talk because it is true, this team was a wagon but won't be together next year, they just won't. But then we get to the good stuff.
"Sent us out west, we fucking unplug the electric factory" See ya Seattle.
"Then they sent us up Northeast, we had to remind everyone who the real fucking savages are." Adios Yankees.
"Then they sent us to Red October....LEFT EM IN POOL OF BLOOD! RING THE FUCKING BELL CUZ WE'RE THE World WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS."
Amazing. What a fantastic postgame speech that will for sure rub people the wrong way, but who cares. You can say what you want, you're World Series champs. Pop that champagne.
