Yesterday I compared Tom Veryzer to the Bad News Bears' Alfred Olgilvie. There is a resemblance.
That got me thinking about which Cubs would match up with some of the other Bears. Here are a few that I came up with.
the glasses wearing Greg Maddux. This is a looks only pick, since Maddux could actually get a pitch across the plate, something poor Stein couldn't do.
Behind the plate for the Bears was the big slob Engelberg. His partner in blue pinstripes?
The big slob Barry Foote.
- the ultra cool, too good for anyone Kelly Leak. HIs Cubby cool partner has to be...
...Pepi, Joe Pepitone. Joe had a hair dryer in the locker room; Joe wore a hair piece; Joe owned a bar on Rush Street. He too was Mr. Cool.
