Cubs’ World Series Win Gets Bill Murray Roar, Hollywood Love + FLOTUS Praise

No disrespect to the Dallas Cowboys but with their first World Series win in 108-years, the Chicago Cubs looks to be America’s team tonight.

Taking the MLB championship in Game 7 with a 8-7 victory over the Cleveland Indians in the 10th inning, the Windy City team saw dedicated fan Bill Murray on his feet at Progressive Field. “I cried just a little bit, just for a second, but this is beautiful,” the Groundhog Day actor told ESPN after the game.

Having to endure a rain delay right near the end, the Cubs also had an almost immediately outpouring of love from Bob Newhart, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and others in Hollywood. Plus there were a certain two Chicago daughters who have been living in Washington D.C. the past few years.

There was also a déjà vu shout out of sorts from a movie that long long ago predicted the Cubs win.

This year’s World Series has seen surging ratings for Fox so far and will be likely see a near high for the final game in viewership when the numbers come out tomorrow.
