It wasn't all bad
Nobody knows what Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa would have done with the ring if his team had not just won their first World Series title, but the question is moot. "Right now I'm about to take another big step in my life," he said in his postgame interview, minutes after winning his World Series championship ring. "Daniela Rodriguez, you make me the happiest man in the world. Will you marry me?"
She said yes.
