The Cubs are moving on to the NLCS after winning another playoff elimination game, this time against the Nationals in Game 5 of the NLDS.
Chicago pitcher Jon Lester has won World Series before, but was celebrating in the locker room like a rookie post season call up. When reporters caught up with him to get his thoughts on the big win, Lester was noticeably hammered, and dropped some slurred drunk talk, mixed in with a couple live TV expletives.
The interviewers were in a tough position here, but, as Lester put it, it’s not all peaches and roses.

I feel like I can totally relate to Jon Lester.
