I keep excitedly waiting for the Cubs to give the media a tour of the new clubhouse so we can see some pictures.

More than 2,000 miles away, in Anaheim, Calif., Cubs players were looking forward to getting home to see their new 30,000-square-foot clubhouse.

"We had a meeting about a week ago where they had a guy show us a video tour of it, and it basically was done," pitcher Kyle Hendricks said. "There's so much space in there."

Hendricks mentioned an infrared sauna and "a bunch of crazy stuff they've got in the training room for us," including treadmills in pools and a sauna in what will be the second-biggest clubhouse in baseball behind the Yankees'.

"I know they put a lot of hard work into it," pitcher Justin Grimm said. "So it's exciting to see how it turns out. Pictures can do it only so much justice. But you walk through it and experience, it will be special."

Pitcher Clayton Richard said he has seen the blueprint and is looking forward to the new digs, while hinting he'll miss the old place.

Juan Carlos Nava ate Big Macs there with his dad every opening day. Kurtis Arndt loved the "incredible strength" of the free Wi-Fi. John Matthews remembers a fast-food breakfast before attending his first Cubs game.


hahahahah

Jim Johnson recalls having nuggets from there once. Chuck Adams once used the bathroom.

"It felt like home," Nava said. "You could go into that McDonald's and become friends with anyone."

"It's like a historical landmark has been washed away," Nava said.

Although one fan even wrote a goodbye song, not everyone is nostalgic over the loss of a McDonald's


I'm sure that's a masterpiece.

It's one thing to have idiotic baseball views. It's another to have a creepy weirdo attachment to a horsefeathering McDonalds because it has free wifi and feels like home.

It was also a convenient place to drop a deuce, but I don't feel nostalgic about it.
