Video: ESPN puts PJ Fleck on the spot, asking him to deliver impromptu pregame speech to Cubs

PJ Fleck showed up in Bristol with his trademark energy that has built up Western Michigan from a 1-11 program in his first season to a program that is now undefeated and ranked in the AP top 20 after an undefeated start to 2016.

On the set of ESPN, Fleck was asked to provide a motivational pregame speech to the Chicago Cubs, who begin their quest for a World Series Title later tonight.

Fleck obliged, and provided quite the speech on the spot...eventually spinning his trademark "Row the Boat" in at the end, with an appearance by an oar - which of course made the trip from Kalamazoo.
