Chicago Cubs manager Joe Madden has never been accused of being conventional. One of his many innovations is the always entertaining themed road trip.

He used to do this back in the Tampa days, but the Cubbies get a bit more light shined on them nationally.

For their current West Coast swing, Madden and the gang decided to go with a 70's theme, specifically inspired by the cult classic Anchorman.

It's much more fun to actually dress up as characters from the film, and the players rose to this occasion.

Check a few of them out at The Daily Player.

While you're here, though, Fanorama has just the thing for the real you and/or your costumed persona. These retro aluminum magnesium polarized and mirrored sunglasses work with anything:
