For several decades, Harry Caray’s oversized glasses have represented the height of eyewear couture on Chicago’s North Side...but now that the rejuvenating Chicago Cubs have landed their man for manager, that fashion may be redefined by the uber-cool specs and personality of Papa Joe Maddon.
Having opted out of his Tampa Ray contract with four eyes towards managing on a big stage, Maddon hit the market precisely when the beloved Chicago Cubs are transitioning to winning ways: young talent on the rise, coffers of cash poised to round out the roster and the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field renovated for the 21st century. It's a match made in heaven!
Maddon is renowned as a friendly, quirky, hip baseball genius loved by players, media and fans alike. With the right talent, budget and audience Joe could really explode as a winner and personality...and where could be better than surfing the wave of a Cubby Renaissance?!
Here we imagine an emblematic North Side bear sporting Joe’s trademark glasses and white crew cut welcoming Maddon to town.
