Cubs get their own issue of ESPN the Magazine

CHICAGO – When you haven’t won a World Series title in over a century and you’re the favorite heading into the playoffs, people are going to take notice.

The self-proclaimed Worldwide Leader in Sports certainly is.

ESPN the Magazine not only put Cubs’ star first baseman Anthony Rizzo on it’s newest cover, it gave the north siders their own issue.

Some features, including one on the heralded architect of the new look Cubs – Theo Epstein, will be released online as soon as tomorrow.

The paper version is scheduled to hit newsstands this Friday.

One we’re especially looking forward to takes an inside look at the legendary ‘party room’ beneath Wrigley Field.

Hopefully, there’s a picture or two.
