Bill Murray pops open lots of champagne to celebrate the Cubs winning the 2016 World Series in the clubhouse at Progressive Field on Wednesday (November 2) in Cleveland, Ohio.
The 66-year-old actor is a lifelong Cubs fan and poured lots of champagne with President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs Theo Epstein and many of the players. Bill has been making headlines since the Cubs have been playing in the World Series – he even gave total strangers tickets to the game to sit right next to him!
“I never panicked. Of course I thought it was going to happen,” Bill told CNS Chicago after the big win while still popping champagne.
The 66-year-old actor and devoted Chicago Cubs fan gave his ticket to game six of the World Series to a fellow Cubs fan before last night’s game (November 1) against the Cleveland Indians.
Karen Michel was waiting outside of Progressive Field Stadium in Indiana, hoping that she would find someone selling an extra ticket to the game, but unfortunately did not find any tickets.
She then saw Bill walking and decided to follow him when he turned around and offered her a ticket to sit next to him!
“He kind of shuffled me into the door,” Karen told MLB.com. “I thought it was just a ticket to get in. But was a ticket to sit right here (next to him).”
The Cubs won game six against the Indians, forcing a game seven which will determine the winners of the 2016 World Series!
Game seven of the World Series is on tonight (November 2)!
