The biggest Kansas City Royals fan in Hollywood? That would be Paul Rudd, who grew up rooting for the team, and was on hand to witness the Royals’ first World Series win in 30 years on Sunday night in New York.

“I haven’t thought about anything. I can’t even believe that I’m standing here right now. I don’t know how I snuck in,” Rudd said to reporters after the game. The Ant-Man star partied with the Royals players in the clubhouse following the team’s clinching win in Game 5, and even participated in a celebratory beer shower.

Last year, after the Royals won the American League pennant, Rudd joked that he would host a party at his mom’s house. “She’s out of town, I’ve got a keg. It’s gonna be sweet!” he said. On Sunday night, Rudd was asked if he planned to host another party at her home.

“Well, it depends if he she goes out of town. If it happens, just be cool. Just be cool,” he joked to reporters.
