From the October 10 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

Loading the player reg...

JILLIAN MELE: And the Houston Astros moving onto the ALCS after knocking out the Red Sox in Boston in Game 4. And how about this: They celebrated, obviously, with champagne in the locker room. How else do you celebrate? And patriotic outfielder Josh Reddick donning an American flag Speedo. So, you know, good morning, hey. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Absolutely.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Was that a water hose? I mean that wasn't champagne.

MELE: It's champagne. Yeah.

EARHARDT: No, that wasn't all champagne, right? 

MELE: It's champagne. It's what they do. They usually wear goggles. Oh yeah, it's a thing.
