Kyle Schwarber showed up to work on the Fourth of July in a bright red, white and blue beard

The Cubs' color scheme is already perfectly suited for the Fourth of July -- red, white and blue logo, pinstripe jerseys, it's a great look.
For the Fourth, then, Kyle Schwarber wanted to add a little something to his outfit when he showed up in the Wrigley Field dugout for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.
Since he wasn't in Joe Maddon's starting lineup, he saw fit to entertain himself with a super-patriotic red, white and blue beard to go along with his mini American flag and Cubs uniform: 

With all due respect to everybody else out there who dressed up for the occasion to celebrate the 242nd birthday of the United States, I'm afraid Schwarber has you beat.
