The Cubs may be having a horrendous season, but it’s nice to see they are still having some fun. Big changes for the better were expected in Chicago when Theo Epstein took the reins, and in his first season as GM Cubs fans have seen the complete opposite. The Cubs are 38-56, in last place in the NL Central and are looking to be sellers at the trade deadline. None of that nonsense has stopped them from dressing up for road trips.

As you can see from the photo that Cubs writer Doug Padilla shared on Twitter, the Chicago players dressed up as “Super Mario Bros.” characters this past weekend before their trip to Pittsburgh. Pictured above are pitcher Scott Maine, catcher Steve Clavenger and infielder Bryan LaHair. They may be one of the worst teams in baseball, but good for the Cubs for finding a way to keep it unique. We’ve seen the Rays wear all white before a road trip this year, the Cardinals rock these crazy tuxedos and the Mets dress like cowboys. To our knowledge, this is 2012′s first Nintendo-themed road trip.
