Joe Maddon responds to texts in the best way possible

SHARE Joe Maddon responds to texts in the best way possible

Nothing Joe Maddon does is conventional. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that he responds to texts unlike any other 61-year-old.

Every week, Maddon does a segment on WSCR 670’s Spiegel and Goff show. Tuesday, Maddon needed to come on at a different time because of the Cubs doubleheader in Pittsburgh.

To make sure the manager would be available. the show’s executive producer Jay Zawaski sent Maddon a friendly text.

That’s when Maddon happened:

Yes, the gray haired manager of a team headed to the playoffs just used an Austin Powers meme as a reply to a text.

To be fair, this is the same manager that quoted “The Office” during a postgame press conference and offered to buy the press a beer when first hired.
