Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon: 'I'm a man! I'm 60!'

The Tampa Bay Rays needed to find a way to sell season tickets - as all baseball teams are trying to do in this time of year - and they wanted to wish manager Joe Maddon a happy 60th birthday. Somehow, they managed to do both in the same video... by impersonating Mike Gundy.

Maddon doesn't even attempt to approach Gundy's decibel level from the rant (no link necessary, you know which rant I'm talking about), which is par for the course. Maddon is the Phil Jackson Zen master of Major League Baseball.

it's a testament to the impact Gundy made on that day way back in September 2007 that MLB franchises are cashing in on the cultural capital of a college football press conference from seven years ago.
