Paul Wall Offers Houston Astros Grillz for World Series
The Houston Astros haven't won the World Series yet but if the team does win, Paul Wall wants them to celebrate in style.
After beating the New York Yankees in Game 7 of the 2017 American League Division Series to advance to the World Series, the Houston rapper made an offer on Twitter. "U know we had to do it! In celebration of @astros goin to the World Series we are offering free grillz for the entire team c/o me/ @tvjohnny," he wrote.
According to Wall, he got the idea to offer the team grillz after running into pitchers Justin Verlander, Dallas Keuchel and Tyler Clipart at a restaurant before the ALCS began. “I was just joking around with them about it,” Wall told the Associated Press. “I said: ‘Hey man if y’all go to the World Series, I’m going to hook y’all up with some grillz.’ And they were like: ’Hell yeah we want some grillz.”
If the team were to accept the offer, Wall would be willing to make solid gold grillz worth about $500. “One or two is not too expensive, now if the whole 40-man roster wants a grill, oooh it could start getting expensive,” the rapper said. “But I’m a die-hard Astros fan and for me and TV Johnny to make grillz for them and congratulate them with a grill it means something, and that they would even accept or want a grill means a lot to me.”
As for members of the Astros team actually wearing the grillz, pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. would be up for it. "Definitely," he said. "I would definitely get a grill."
Wall also made sure that Verlander's fiancee, Kate Upton, could get a grill too if she wanted. "We're going to hook her up with a rose gold, pink sapphire grill," he said. "Yep, yep, we've got her grill ready, too. His and hers."
