Looking for some insight on the champagne celebration in the Jays clubhouse?
As the only wine blogger with a Physed degree I want to know what they’re drinking and how much money are guys who earned a million dollars in salary this month paying for champagne. The talking heads at Sportsnet keep referring to the expensive champagne in the clubhouse. What I found may shock you!
Firstly, why does Josh Donaldson get eye protection and Hazel Mae doesn’t? Also, who pays for her dry cleaning?
So it turns out the Jays aren’t pouring and spraying and possibly drinking champagne at all. Super slow motion on my PVR shows me that they’re drinking American sparkling wine from California [ask anyone from France and watch them be outraged at this being called Champagne even though we mean no harm – WE MEAN NO HARM!] .
And how much does it cost? Less than $15!
These players earn obscene amounts of money – the team is owned by Rogers Communications – who i pay a thousand dollars a month for my cell phone – and they drink $15 bubbly. Awesome! And they also drank Korbel, which is also less than $15 a bottle.
So my point here? I think we could all afford $15 per bottle to shake up and spray all over each other if the Jays in the ALCS! Do it, nobody from France is watching baseball anyway.
