Catching a foul ball is a rite of passage for baseball fans. Better yet is catching a foul ball in your beer, which apparently comes with its own ritual: Chugging that beer.
The latest to be initiated into this elite club is a Cubs fan, who caught a foul in his beer at Chicago’s Wrigley field last night, and immediately chugged that ish, NBC Sports Chicago reports. Cubs Talk (@NBCSCubs) tweeted a video of the uproarious occasion, saying, “At Wrigley, it’s ALWAYS happy hour!”

One mathematically inclined Twitter user was less than impressed.
Happy hour = half price drinks
Happy hour at Wrigley = 3x the price

We hear you, JS. Nevertheless, it’s always fun to watch someone chug a beer. Or, at least, more fun that watching baseball. Oh!
Congrats to the Cubs, who gave Chad (we’re calling the chugger Chad) something to celebrate; the Cubs beat the Mets seven to four.
