Winning tonight’s Wild Card game against Pittsburgh is probably pretty high on Cubs manager Joe Maddon’s wish list.
But a bar in Wrigleyville is helping him fulfill another wish.
Maddon has said in the past that if he ever were to own a bar, he’d name it The Pink Flamingo.
Well, the bar Merkle’s in Wrigleyville has changed its name to just that for as long as the Cubs are in the playoffs.
They’ve even offered him honorary ownership in the place if he wants it!
Speaking of the playoffs, I’ll admit that even though I’m a HUGE Cubs fan, this hype is really killing me.
Let’s just play ball!
