The Ultimate Bae vs. Ballplayer: Ian Happ and Emily Rizzo Battle for the Heart of Anthony Rizzo!

Chicago Cubs

Okay, folks. It’s the Bae vs. Ballplayer you’ve all been waiting for: Ian Happ v. Emily Rizzo.

In this episode, Happ squares off against Rizzo (mother of Kevin!) to see who knows Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo best. And, oh boy is it a good one. On top of learning whom Rizzo thinks is the better cuddler, driver, and jokester, this episode delivers more than one Ian Happ smile! It’s basically got everything!

Also, today I learned that Anthony Rizzo and I share the same pet peeve *and* greatest fear. We’re basically best friends already, he just doesn’t know it yet.
