The Cubs returned home from a 5-1 road set last night and they arrived to more than just hugs from loved ones and congratulations from fans.
In fact, what they came back to was much, much better. (I assume. I don’t know, I don’t have fans or a family.)
Either way, this brand spankin’ new Cubs clubhouse is pretty dope.

If you hadn’t seen the old clubhouse than trust this is the greatest design overhaul since the latest episode of HGTV’s Flip or Flop. The Cubs’ old clubhouse was a complete and total shit house.
While the exterior of Wrigley Field still looks like a construction war zone it shouldn’t really matter. Your mother has always taught you that it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
And the inside of the Friendly Confines is about 15 shades of badass.
An old school Cubs logo graces the ceiling like a Michaelangelo, TVs line the walls, Bryzzo gets neighboring lockers — as do ATL brethren Jason Heyward and Dexter Fowler and the J-Squared/Fried Chicken Boyz pitching duo of Jon Lester and John Lackey.
The new clubhouse renovation brings the Cubs from the Stone Age to 2016, going from baseball’s smallest clubhouse to the second largest in the entire league.
Ah, it’s a magical time for the Chicago Cubs (Kyle Schwarber’s injury notwithstanding). But if there was ever a time where I was happy to stay eyes glued to Twitter at 3 AM on a Sunday this was it.
The Cubs open up a six-game homestand against Cincinnati and Colorado but the official unveiling of the new home clubhouse by far steals the spotlight. Oh, and the clubhouse for said Reds and Rockies? Yeah, they’ll need to wait till next season to enjoy those updates.
Talk about a savage move on the Cubs’ part.
