Is 'Embrace The Hangover' the new Cubs offseason slogan?
The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series win since 1908, and Cubs manager started the season with his brilliant slogan 'Embrace the Target' in spring training.
“Joe will do a great job of that,” general manager Jed Hoyer said during the GM's Winter meetings. “I think that ‘Embrace The Target’ was in hindsight really brilliant. He looked at it like: ‘We’re going to be the favorites. We have to embrace it.’ I think he’s going to figure out the right tone to ‘Embrace The Hangover.’”
This slogan is unmistakably a reference to all the celebrations that the Cubs players and the City of Chicago has been doing since the lifting of the Billy Goat curse and the 108-year title drought.
The fun is in the winning and Maddon knows that the players should play loose and have fun.
