Anthony Rizzo and the Cubs won rings last November – rings that involved 108 years of waiting. First baseman and his teammates were happy about it:
On Thursday, a day off for the Cubs, Rizzo gave his girlfriend Emily Vakos a ring. And the young player looked as happy as he was at that moment, and be careful if any more. It was a wedding ring. Anthony Rizzo is getting married!
“You want to find someone to spend the rest of your life and fortunately I have that,” Rizzo told Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. “It feels good. It’s exciting, very exciting.”
Instead of proposing to Emily in the British Virgin Islands or another of the exotic and fun places where the couple traveled, Rizzo decided to do it in a boat on Lake Michigan with a beautiful view of the city of Chicago.
We are sure it is a special place for both. We have to think that the song “Go, Cubs, Go” or the theme of “Family Matters” was heard at that time.
