When you're as wacky as Joe Maddon, sometimes you wake up in an impound lot. That's what happened Friday morning when the Cubs manager's 1970s "Cousin Eddie" van was towed from outside the Cubs Convention hotel downtown, where it was apparently parked illegally.
A bartender at John Barleycorn in Wrigleyville was fired today after trying to make World Series winning Cubs Manager Joe Maddon pay his own bartab.
Due to Joe Maddon’s tendencies to shake things up just hours before a game, fans never know who’s going to end up the roster. Except @mrcub158 and a few other Twitter users who decided tonight’s lineup against the Dodgers.
“Warming up before games with a good bounce was an idea I had,” said Cubs skipper Joe Maddon. “Maybe trampolines on the wall and ceiling went too far. Who’s to say? We’re just here trying not to suck.”
“I called up Joe, looking for maybe a bit of advice,” said Quenneville on Tuesday. “Wouldn’t you know it, he said he was hosting a family of magicians for dinner and we had a little conference call. It was enlightening.”
