Daniel Stern Reprises ‘Rookie Of The Year’ Role For Cub Playoff Run

Phil Brickma served as the Chicago Cubs pitching coach for at least one season in the mid-90s, though we're not exactly sure which year because it occurred in an alternate reality where kids play in the Major Leagues and doctors say things like "funky butt loving." Also, Phil Brickma wasn't a real person -- it's professional quirky sidekick actor Daniel Stern and the movie was "Rookie of the Year." Just don't tell Adam Stern that...
Stern has resurrected the quirky, tobacco chewin', spit spittin' coach for the Chicago Cubs' playoff run -- a run which has now officially advanced to the NLCS, thanks to the San Francisco Giants' shoddy bullpen.
During last night's game, Stern -- er, Brickma -- lost the game feed due to what he's surmised as "the curse" all Cubs fans are under. "I heard the goats," he says in front of a snowy television.
Excited to see where this thing goes as the Cubs continue to march towards their first World Series title in 109 years. Or, ya know, get knocked out in tragic fashion.
