Lou Piniella Walks Among Us


Google Maps’ Street view feature has provided a nearly endless stream of interesting and funny pictures, from girls flashing the vans to a drug deal going down, and today, via SportsbyBrooks comes an awesome moment captured forever in Google maps. Driving outside Wrigley the Google vans managed to catch a Cubs celebrity out on the streets; the man, the myth, the legend, Lou Pinella Piniella.

If you type in 3552 N. Clark, Chicago IL 60636, or click here you can check it out yourself. Turns out big Lou is an ordinary man of the streets just like the rest of us. Unfortunately the vans moved on and missed Lou freaking out about a scratch on his car, ripping the car seats out and throwing them into the middle of the road. Ah well. Next time.

    I was so happy that my first mlb baseball game was not only at Wrigley watching th cubs from the third baseline…. but the game that Lou freaked out on the umpire right by the third baseline in front of my face… what a great memory 🙂

    ugh, that’s what I get for trying to post quickly. I left out the “i” because Lou is all about team
