Occasionally, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one fandom to experience a promotion so ridiculous, so bizarre, and so glorious that we are collectively impelled to exclaim its existence from the highest of rooftops.




cubs zubaz

Today the Chicago Cubs revealed their special promotional events for the 2013 season, and resting comfortably among the Weather Education Day, Singles Night, and Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day promotions is Cubs Zubaz Night on September 23.

If you buy a ticket to that game through the Special Events page, you get a pair of Cubs Zubaz, which you will be required (by me) to immediately put on. For those unfamiliar with Zubaz, be it due to age or a resistance to awesomeness, you can educate yourself here.

You can check out the other Cubs Special Events for the year here.

  • North Side Irish

    Fingers crossed that they send them to Season Ticket Holders too…

  • Ron

    I am not sure there is any amount of alcohol that could allow me to wear those in public.

    • Edwin

      I would think alcohol leads to taking off all kinds of pants anyways.

  • Greg

    Zubaz? Pearl Jam?

    I think we call can agree that Brett Taylor is the new Cubs target demographic.

      Haha. Bingo.

  • OregonCubFan

    I think we should all buy a ticket so we get a pair, and then immediately send them to Brett so he has a pair for every day of the year.

  • beerhelps

    That made me miss the Road Warriors.

    If I didn’t think some style challenged individual might buy them from me of an enormous sum, I’d make it a point to avoid going to that game.

    I’d wear them around the house or even in the yard,out back of course.I know my wife would not go to the store with me wearing them,which makes me want to wear them everyday,lol.

  • TheRiot2

    Now the beer store is another matter.I’d bet Rocky 3260 would wear them to his favorite wine emporium too get a jug of Opici,right Rock Star?

    Guys, guys, guys. If any of y’all get to go to the games regularly and are able to get some of the stuff they’re giving out (but don’t actually want it), I’m willing to negotiate prices for some of the things. I think it’d be hilarious to own these pants, but I’ll be at school… in Tennessee… and there will be no way I’d be able to make it up there. So if any of y’all wanna help a fellow fan, look no further! :)

  • Pat

    Are those meant as a backup for when your Cubs parachute pants are in the wash?

    Anyone else notice the start of the game on Zuba Night? 7:05 on a Friday? Most Home games in the summer months are “TBA” on the schedule for Friday games – Hmmmmm

      That’s interesting.

  • Frankfort Dave

    Just bought 2 tickets for my brother and I….wonder what Brett would do for a picture of two 40 year old dudes in Cubs Zubaz and Bleacher Nation T-Shirts?

      Regardless, I don’t see how you can deprive the rest of us.

      You’ve got a little lead time here, so I strongly suggest that you guys cultivate some mullets too.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Swoon in the extreme.

  • hawkcub

    Mullet on two 40 year old dudes,would that be bald in the front and party in the back?

  • Kevdogg

    I wish macho man were alive to coke butcher the stretch

    • Internet Random

      That would have been every kind of awesome.

  • web hosting

    I needed to allow you realize this really is truly great quality content. Well-written informative posts like this are just what I search for online. You’ve really carried out your study.
