SHARE A pair of Cubs teammates congratulate All-Stars in unique way

View image | gettyimages.comThe Cubs are one of the youngest teams in baseball, but they are also one of the closest. That is made clear during every celebration, or group picture. This team actually likes each other.

That was put on display once again Monday evening. Both Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant were named National League All-Star reserves. For Rizzo it’s his second All-Star Game, his first was last year, and the first for Bryant.

Moments after the announcement was made, another young phenom on the Cubs tweeted out a message of support for his teammates.

But Addison Russell wasn’t the only teammate to show support. David Ross, one of the few true veterans on the team, had nearly the exact same thought when he saw his teammates would be honored.

The reference is, of course, to Hall of Fame wrestler Ric Flair. The two claps is referring to a celebration the Indianapolis Colts had last season. They also looked to the Nature Boy for inspiration.
