Joe Maddon has specific plans to rewatch entire Game 7 of 2016 World Series




 

One of the joys of life is basking in our past accomplishments. There's nothing like recalling great memories with a fond appreciation for what once was.

Joe Maddon's biggest accomplishment as a big league manager is leading the Cubs to their first championship in 108 years. We're nearly four years removed from the 2016 World Series, and by now, Maddon has to have watched the series' grand finale, right? Heck, MLB Network just reaired Games 5-7 two weeks ago.

Wrong.

On the latest Baseball Tonight Podcast, Maddon told ESPN's Buster Olney he has yet to rewatch Game 7 of the '16 Fall Classic all the way through. However, the now-Angels manager already is envisioning when that moment will ultimately come.

"It's one of those things that I think when I'm done, totally done (retired)…when I get settled in and I'm hanging out in Pennsylvania somewhere," Maddon said, "I'll get this 95-inch television by that time, with the great surround system.

"I'll pop it up there and sit there with a really good glass of red [wine], some kind of delicacy from a local hoagie shop and watch the whole thing."

Sounds like a plan, Joe. Let us know how your viewing goes.
