Nick Offerman and Craig Robinson are so Chicago, it’s eerie. From Offerman’s role as the legend that is Ron Swanson in Parks and Recreation, to Robinson’s role as the legend that is Darryl Philbin on The Office, the hilarity never ends with these two on my television screen. What’s funny is that both dudes are extremely Chicago with the accent, dry humor and the way they cuss; it reminds me of all the homies I know that are from the Windy City. It’s borderline scary.
New Era used the duo to help kick off the beginning to the baseball season by putting a Chicago Cubs fan against a Chicago White Sox fan. Let the snapping begin. Be sure to pick up the new 59Fifty cap from New Era, and if you see a 7 3/4 Atlanta Braves hat, then cop me one. Big ups to the dude in NYC that cuffed my hat. Jerk.
