Video: The Cubs And Diamondbacks Had A Lovably Ridiculous Dance-Off Last Night

On Thursday, the Cubs and the Arizona Diamondbacks kept fans at Wrigley Field entertained through two rain delays with an incredible impromptu dance-off. It involved horse masks, lassos, and bowling... with human pins. (Who knew baseball teams casually kept masks and lassos in their bullpens?)

Both teams documented the shenanigans on their Twitter accounts. Here's the Cubs' wordless video:

And here's the Diamondbacks' version, in which announcers helpfully explain the dance moves. (I genuinely found it helpful. This is not sarcasm.)

Special shoutout to Diamondbacks pitcher T.J. McFarland, who put his uniform on upside down. His head was literally in his pants.

The Cubs ultimately lost the game 10-8... but everyone lost their dignity, a little bit! In a fun way.
