Bill Murray Celebrating the Chicago Cubs Win Will Make You Feel Better About This Crazy Year

2 minute read

Diehard Chicago Cubs fan (and actor) Bill Murray’s celebration after his team’s win last night is the pure, unadulterated joy you need to witness right now.

After the Cubs clinched their first title since 1908 in Game 7 last night, Murray went all out in celebration that involved trying to honk the horn of the MVP Ben Zobrist’s car parked on the field, and lots of champagne antics as a “reporter” in the clubhouse afterward. At a time of electoral uncertainty in the U.S, instability overseas and gloomy economic signs, Murray’s exuberant bliss comes as a welcome tonic.

“I knew I was going to cry, I didn’t think it was because I was blind,” Murray told the Chicago Tribune during the celebration, after taking a full face of champagne.

Check out some of his happiness journey below.


Hardly in the mood for long conversation, Murray put a face to the bliss that Cubs fan are experiencing after more than a century of waiting. We’re all better having seen it.
