What does last year’s MLB World Series Champion Chicago Cubs do for this year’s champion Houston Astros? Order the team pizza from the Original Fuzzy’s Pizza in Houston.
Fuzzy and Rita Hajjar received a unique call-in order from the Chicago Cubs organization to send 40 pizzas to the newly crowned 2017 World Series champions at the Minute Maid Park before Friday’s parade.
The order included classics like cheese, pepperoni and vegetarian, along with some Fuzzy specialty pies like the Fuzzy’s Special (pepperoni, Canadian bacon, Italian sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, black olives, red sauce and mozzarella) and President Bush’s Pizza (artichoke hearts, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, Italian sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, black olives, red sauce and mozzarella).
A note accompanied the order:
“Cheers & Congratulations
To The new Reigning Champs!
Enjoy The Time-Honored Tradition Of Feeding The New Champions!
From: The Chicago Cubs”
The congratulatory pizza tradition began in 2014 when the Boston Red Sox sent pizza to the San Francisco Giants. Each year since, the teams have passed on the tradition.
Who will the Astros choose next year?
