The Chicago Cubs will have their first themed road trip of the season as it will be a 70's Ron Burgundy-type attire for the players this weekend as they travel out west to Los Angeles and San Diego.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon is a fan of the movie Anchorman and said that he thought that infielder Tommy La Stella looked like Brick Tamland from Anchorman.

"They're like two interchangeable guys," Maddon said according to ESPN's Jess Rogers. "I see Brick, I see Tommy. I see Tommy, I see Brick. Put some glasses on Tommy, some sideburns, I got Brick."

Maddon joked that the trip will be sponsored by "Sex Panther Cologne" from the movie. Anthony Rizzo and some of the other players dressed up like characters from Anchorman. Sign me up anytime on this idea.
