In case somehow you’ve forgotten, David Freese is from St. Louis. He’s never going to have to buy a drink in this town again thanks to his game six heroics against the Texas Rangers that helped the Cardinals win the 2011 World Series.
Freese’s MLB career has seen him go from St. Louis to Anaheim to Pittsburgh to now Los Angeles, where last night the Dodgers’ organist decided to give a shout out to the Blues during one of Freese’s at bats (h/t to Dra3lor on Reddit):
Not only is this a fun shout-out to Freese’s home town hockey team, it’s also some serious trolling of the rival San Jose Sharks. There’s not a lot of love lost between those two teams, and the Kings enjoy reminding the Sharks that they’ve never won the Stanley Cup.
That’s cold, Bailey.
This is a classic case of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” but let’s at least hope that if the Blues make it to the Cup finals Bailey will remember he’s named after a former Blue and cut St. Louis some slack.
