The Chicago Cubs were popping bottles after their NLDS-clinching win over the Washington Nationals on Thursday.
And Jon Lester, the team’s ace left-hander, was the life of the party.
Throughout the Cubbies’ celebration at Nationals Park, reporters repeatedly put a microphone in front of Lester, and the 33-year-old delivered solid gold. Here are some of the highlights:
“You know, it’s not always gonna be peaches and roses, or however the saying goes.”
Close enough, Jon.
Somehow, things kept getting better:
You wouldn’t know it by watching these videos, but Lester apparently hates champagne.
What a performance.
Whether you root for the Cubs or not, you have to be intrigued by the thought of Lester celebrating with team president Theo Epstein, who stole the show after the 2016 World Series.
