Theo Epstein takes a tumble at Hot Stove Cool Music
Theo Epstein ended curses in both Boston and Chicago by bringing World Series titles to both cities.
While the Cubs were in Boston to take on the Red Sox in a weekend series, Epstein was a part of the Hot Stove Cool Music charity event which benefits both the Red Sox Foundation and the Foundation To Be Named Later.
Joining Epstein were players from both teams, reporter Peter Gammons and Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder.
During the event, Epstein was jamming out when he tried to jump up onto the stage where the drums were only to take a tumble:

Later in the event, Epstein and Vedder jumped into the crowd trying to get the full rock star experience.
Here’s more on the event via MLB.com:
“It’s great to see these two teams come together,” Vedder said. “It’s nice to see everyone getting along for the greater good. I hope everyone follows their lead.”
Vedder headlined the concert for the third year in a row and played for two hours, singing familiar tunes including “Hearts and Thoughts,” and also some covers like “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd and “The Kids Are Alright” by The Who.
Epstein’s former team, the Red Sox, got the better of the Cubs in the series winning 2-1.
