"Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman is an outdoorsy sort of gentleman, that much is known by many. The Joliet, Ill., native is also a devoted Cubs fan, so it should come as no surprise that he showed up outdoors at Wrigley Field on Friday as a special guest of the club. It also appeared as if he and a bus full of friends and family members made their way to the game, as well.
His activities began with a ceremonial first pitch:

As seen in the clip atop this post, he also provided the Friendly Confines with a spirited rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" delivered with the assistance of his niece, Maggie.
Maybe next time, Offerman will lead the seventh-inning stretch with the smooth sax tones of the inimitable Duke Silver.
