The Chicago Cubs are handling the pressure quite well.
Joe Maddon’s bunch is dealing with sky-high expectations going into the 2016 season, yet the Cubs manager is sticking to his shtick and the squad is keeping things loose at spring training in Mesa, Ariz.
First, a dance party broke out over the weekend, with Cubs pitcher Justin Grimm showing off his impressive moves.
Then, Maddon fired up some Earth, Wind & Fire, tossed on a sweet outfit and incorporated clowns.
This all is unsurprising given Maddon’s knack for getting a little wacky with his team, but it’s entertaining, nevertheless, especially since many pundits and fans actually expect the Cubbies to do the unthinkable this season and bring a World Series title to Chicago.
