Anthony Rizzo broke his phone during the NLCS, still hasn’t had it fixed

Tuesday November 8th, 2016

Just how superstitious were the Cubs during their World Series run? First baseman Anthony Rizzo broke his phone during the postseason and still hasn’t had it fixed.

Rizzo, along with Ben Zobrist and free agent outfielder Dexter Fowler—both members of the championship team—made an appearance on The Tonight Show on Monday. That’s where Rizzo dropped the note about his phone, which he didn’t want to repair because things were going so well.

What’s with all these athletes having phone issues? Steven Adams recently dropped his in the cold tub didn’t get a new one for three days.
