George Springer and the Astros did a lot of amazing things this year. The team had a great regular season and managed to be a rallying force for the city of Houston, which was rocked by Hurricane Harvey in August. Then, during the playoffs, Springer overcame a pretty poor ALCS showing to have an incredible World Series and take home the World Series MVP after the Astros won their first title. However, those accomplishments may pale in comparison to what Springer says he and his teammates pulled off during the World Series celebration. In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, the 28-year-old outfielder claimed that they turned the trophy into a functional drinking device. "We made a beer funnel out of it," Springer said. "I watched the guys holding it up, and they poured the champagne on it and they just started to drink it." Now wait just a second here ... Just in case anyone doesn't realize what said trophy looks like, here it is in all its glory.
