Kris Bryant goes undercover in Chicago as Lyft driver (Video)
As a frontrunner for the NL Rookie of the Year Award and one of the biggest reasons why the team is in the midst of its first winning season since 2009, Cubs phenom third baseman Kris Bryant is one of the hottest commodities in the game today. Just don’t expect to recognize him out on the street. Because apparently not even the City of Chicago can do that.
Bryant recently pranked some unsuspecting Lyft passengers in the Windy City by going undercover as their driver. And it was gold, Jerry! Gold!
Classic. And what an unflinching commitment to character too. Bryant even plays it cool as the passengers shoot the breeze with him about the surprising success of the Cubs and their new stud third baseman, who curiously enough is not featured on any of the posters outside of Wrigley Field. And man, that one-liner:
“I play baseball. I’m pretty good.” -Kris Bryant
Yeah, that definitely should have been my senior quote.
And just when you would think that 24 home runs and 93 RBIs as a rookie would be enough to get a guy some local recognition. Go figure.
