Bad News Cubs


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.

Rudi Stein, the glasses wearing pitcher would be

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.

One more

 - 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.
