Kansas City Royals fans have been waiting more than two decades to see their team in the World Series, and Royals fan, Paul Rudd, is getting in on the excitement.
The Royals advanced to the World Series after beating the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday, Oct. 15 and Rudd was out celebrating with all his fellow fans. The actor spoke with TV station, KMBC, after the game.
“Party at my mom’s, man,” Rudd joked, according to People. “She’s out of town. I’ve got a keg. It’s going to be sweet! Five dollar cover!”
Rudd is actually a Kansas City native and seems to be as big a fan now as when he was growing up. He explained what the win meant for the city.
“I know for the last several years, every year, all of us Royals fans, we’ve had the same hope,” Rudd said. “When we went on that win streak this summer, it was like, ‘This could legitimately happen.'”
“I’ve lost my voice, but I’ve lost my voice at just about every game since the Wild Card,” he added. “[The game] was amazing. This entire town feels it.”
Even the Royals got in on the Paul Rudd excitement — by tweeting out a photo of him.

Even though Rudd didn’t need permission from his mom to attend the game, he did have to get a pass from his Marvel bosses. The actor is currently filming Ant-Man and was allowed to leave the set for the momentous win.
Although it appears he was joking with the party invite, his mom may not be happy about it.
