Astros' Springer: 'We made a beer funnel with World Series trophy'

In an interview with Bleacher Report's Joon Lee, the World Series MVP outfielder says that they turned the odd-shaped trophy into a working beer-drinking instrument.

The Houston Astros have had the time of their lives following their decisive World Series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Jose Altuve was named one of the Sports Illustrated's Sportsmen of the Year, alongside Houston Texans star J.J. Watt.

World Series MVP George Spring has made the rounds, on Saturday Night Live and hurricane relief benefits, with the World Series trophy in hand. They've had probably too much fun.

So, going back to that trophy. When asked by Bleacher Report's Joon Lee about the wildest thing he's seen done to the trophy, Springer said something extremely curious.

We made a beer funnel out of it. I watched the guys holding it up, and they poured the champagne on it and they just started to drink it.

Given the shape of the trophy, with its flat base and flags, it's difficult to see how a true beer funnel could be accomplished.

Perhaps, had they sipped cognac during the brainstorming, it could've magically happened with some Astro ingenuity because we already understand that Hennything is possible.
