For the first time since 1985, the Kansas City Royals are headed to the World Series. That means it's time to party, and you're invited -- to Paul Rudd's kegger.
Rudd, the impishly handsome movie star originally from Overland Park, joked that he wanted to party at his mother's home during a post-game interview with KMBC-TV.
"I'm going to be partying at my mom's house," Rudd tells Johnny Kane of KMBC. Kane adeptly asks just who's invited, which is when Rudd opens the party up to all KC fans.
"Hey, party at my mom's, man!" Rudd says. "She's out of town. I've got a keg. It's going to be sweet. Five-dollar cover!"Plenty of Royals fans were happy to take Rudd up on his offer:
I think I'm rooting for the #Royals specifically for the party at Paul Rudd's mom's house. I'll bring an extra tap.— Annie Heckenberger (@anniemal) October 16, 2014
(Speaking of movie-star Missouri baseball fans, did you know Rudd once tried to steal Jon Hamm's prom date?)
Rudd couldn't stop dancing and smiling after Kansas City's big win Wednesday night.
"This is amazing, the entire town feels it," Rudd told KMBC.
