Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go on a bike ride with Joe Maddon?
Of course you have, which is why CSN took you behind the scenes on an Arizona bike ride with Kelly Crull.
After a day of spring training workouts, Maddon took Kelly and the CSN cameras for a workout of his own, where we learned many things about the Cubs skipper, including:
—Joe Maddon is chivalrous.
—Joe Maddon can philosophize even speeding along on a bike.
—Joe Maddon isn't messing around with his mountain bike (seriously, look at the tires on those things).
—Joe Maddon actually gets nervous like a regular human being.
—Joe Maddon calls John Lackey "the other JL".
—Joe Maddon drinks blue Gatorade.
—Joe Maddon starts each day by meditating (like that really surprises anybody).
—Joe Maddon wears sweet biking gloves.
—Joe Maddon called Kelly "Phoebe Buffay".
Even if there was more to be gleaned from the bike ride, the list ends after Maddon's "Friends" joke simply because there's no better way to end that list.
