The new manager of the Chicago Cubs, Joe Maddon, puts cousin Eddy decals on his RV at spring training
Since joining the Chicago Cubs as their new manager in November, Joe Maddon has been doing all sorts of activities to grab the media’s attention. His most recent of these is staying in a “Cousin Eddie” themed RV during the duration of the Cubs spring training in Arizona.
Apparently Cousin Eddie, the character from Christmas Vacation, is one of the new Cubs skippers favorite movie personalities. So he decided to throw him on the side of his RV.
This is just another episode in the series of antics that Joe Maddon has introduced to the Cubs. At the press conference following his hiring, Maddon insisted on it being held at the local spot across the street from Wrigley field called “The Cubby Bear.” Maddon then offered to buy everyone in the bar a beer and a shot.
It’s good to see the Cubs bringing in someone so lighthearted such as Maddon. Even if they don’t end up being as good as they are expecting after big off season signings such as Jon Lester, the fun loving manager will have given Cubs fans memories they haven’t had in quite some time.
