CHICAGO — In Thursday's 9-6 win by the Chicago Cubs over the St. Louis Cardinals, the bottom of the fifth served as the most exciting half-inning of the game, as the Cubs tacked on five runs to go from trailing 3-1 to leading 6-3. However, perhaps the most exciting part of the half-inning did not happen on the field; rather, it took place in Chicago's dugout.

Looking to incite a two-out rally with nobody on base, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was caught on camera participating in the "Let's go, Cubs!" cheer in unison with the Wrigley Field faithful. Although Rizzo's off-beat clapping was a bit suspect, one has to appreciate the enthusiasm displayed by Rizzo in support of his team. And one also has to appreciate the fact that Rizzo, a 28-year-old, has no qualms over showcasing that he is still a kid at heart when playing the game that he loves.
