Forget about “rock star” status, the arrival of Theo Epstein to the Cubs’ front office has reached “Second Coming” proportions.
Maybe the genesis was the Starbucks citing, or possibly it was perpetuated with a Monday luncheon stalking, but there’s no doubt the former Red Sox GM already has reached iconic status in Chicago.
One needed to look no further than the “#LegendofTheo” Twitter thread on Monday. The Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley got it rolling, and soon after #LegendofTheo viraled into a LOL tribute to the man saddled with turning around 103 years of failure.
We present the best of #LegendofTheo:
@GambitRF Eric--Had Theo negotiated the Louisiana Purchase, France would’ve thrown in a player-to-be-named-later
@MRubio52 Mauricio Rubio--Theo signed Matt Forte to an extension
@JohnJulitz John Julitz--Theo just turned water into Old Style
@cst_Cowley cst_Cowley--When Alexander Bell invented the telephone he had three missed calls from Theo.
@mattlindner Matt Lindner--Chicago has officially changed “Tuesday” to “Theosday”
@dancahill_cst Dan Cahill--Abner Doubleday asked Theo, “3 or 4 outs to an inning?” Hawk later concurred.
@GambitRF Eric--Theo was in the briefcase in Pulp Fiction
@mattlindner Matt Lindner--Only person to ever take down Chuck Norris in a street fight? Theo Epstein.
@robperry_12 Rob Perry--The most interesting man in the world calls Theo for advice.
