Reminding everyone that he is a 29-year-old man with a kid's heart, fun-loving Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo grinned from ear to ear upon seeing his likeness on a nearby television screen while in the midst of a postgame interview on Friday. Taking a break from giving a serious answer during his locker-room media session following the Cubs' 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, Rizzo interrupted himself by pointing out that the interview was being broadcast on television.

A reporter then sardonically told Rizzo that his audible acknowledgment of the interview being shown on television would also be shown on television, thereby breaking the fourth wall of postgame interviews. The class clown of the Cubs, Rizzo definitely does not take himself too seriously, and the fact that the three-time All-Star still finds it cool to see himself on television after playing in the majors for nearly a decade is quite delightful.
