CHICAGO -- Joe Maddon's motivational tactics have spanned the spectrum.

He's brought in magicians and zoo animals, thrown team-wide pajama parties, and even hosted a pig roast brunch in the outfield of the Friendly Confines.

Now he's channeling the 1970s hit film "Rocky" to get the Cubs mojo going.

After last night's NLCS Game 2 loss in New York, Maddon blasted the theme song from "Rocky" to inspire some much needed fight for the upcoming three game homestand at Wrigley Field.
