TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Chicago Cubs' bus ride from Mesa to Tucson on Monday was more like a "National Lampoon's Vacation" movie than the usual two-and-a-half hour monotonous ride.

Forty miles into the trip the bus had to stop and wait for a mechanic to come out and change a broken radiator hose. Kevin Millar helped the team pass the 45-minute delay by doing his Frank Caliendo routine, imitating numerous celebrities, including John Madden and Charles Barkley.
"He really nailed the Barkley imitation," outfielder Sam Fuld said of Millar, who also did his best Clint Eastwood from "Gran Torino."
The Cubs missed batting practice due to the delay.
