Before the Cubs parade began today, I tuned into the MLB Network because they were doing interviews with players at Wrigley Field. It was a more relaxed environment before the full festivities began. One of the ballplayers who stopped by was catcher David Ross (who is retiring now that the season is over), talking about how incredibly busy things are. In fact, he wasn't sure if the team will be able to go to the White House, now that President Obama has invited them -- the problem is that it would have to be before he leaves office at the beginning of January. (Ross's thoughts aside, I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen. But then, if it doesn't work out in that short time span, and if Hillary Clinton wins, no doubt they'll do it then since actually a Cubs fan).
That aside, while talking about schedules, he offhandedly mentioned that several of the players will be flying into New York tomorrow to appear on Saturday Night Live!! (The announcers were flabbergasted, they had no idea, so that was a scoop.)
Fire up the DVR.
