Cubs' Dexter Fowler cracked a good Steve Bartman joke on 'The Tonight Show'

( - A trio of World Series champions from the Chicago Cubs -- Ben Zobrist, Dexter Fowler and Anthony Rizzo -- visited "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" on Monday. The did the typical late night show stuff -- talked about how it felt to win a championship, described the feeling at the parade, yada yada yada.

Honestly, it wasn't very riveting stuff.

But wait! Then Fallon brought up the rumors of Steve Bartman, noted foul-ball interferer, throwing out the first pitch during the season-opener next year.

"We haven't heard that yet, but that'd be amazing," Rizzo said. "He's a big part of Cubs history, no matter what."

Fowler also agreed that it would be a good idea, and then he cracked a very good joke.

"It would only be right, though, if Moises Alou were to catch the ball."

Not bad, bad. That's an idea so crazy that it just might work.
