It was previously revealed by famous actor Jon Hamm (a St. Louis native and diehard St. Louis Cardinals fan) that, in true trollish fashion, he donned a Cardinals hat while taking in Game 5 of the 2016 World Series at Wrigley Field.

Following the Cubs' Game 5 win, Hamm attended an after-party at a Chicago bar and met up with fellow actor (and Cubs superfan) Bill Murray, who, in good fun, tossed Hamm's hat into an alley. While that story has been public knowledge for a while now, in an interview on the Rich Eisen Show earlier this week, Hamm provided addtional revelations concerning his fateful night in Chicago.

A very hat-centric interview, Hamm's chat with Eisen revealed that much of his experience at the after-party revolved around his risky decision to wear the Cardinals hat in the midst of so many Cubs fans. While Murray likely temporarily spared Hamm of suffering plenty of harrassment from Cubs supporters by discarding his hat, Hamm was able to retrieve the cap from the alley.

Prior to tracking down his Cardinals hat, Hamm was prompted to stagedive into a swarm of Cubs fans by none other than Pearl Jam lead singer (and faithful Cubs diehard) Eddie Vedder. Understandably wary of being dropped by Cubs fans uninterested in hoisting up a man previously seen sporting a St. Louis cap, Hamm was reluctant to take a dive into the crowd.

Vedder came to his rescue, however, allowing Hamm to temporarily wear his Cubs hat to win over the crowd. The rock legend proved to be wise, as Hamm was successful in his stage-diving attempt and embraced by a group of rowdy Cubs fans who failed to recognize the Cardinals fan in disguise.
