Bill Murray presided over Cubs’ World Series celebration, and it was good (vids)


The Chicago Cubs at long last are again World Series champions after an epic extra-inning Game 7 victory over the Cleveland Indians. To no surprise, once the victory was secured, longtime and devoted Cubs fan Bill Murray — who has been a prominent presence throughout the World Series — was right in the middle of all the celebratory action.

First, cameras captured Murray’s reaction to the final out being recorded. Suffice to say, an emotional mixture of joy and relief was plainly evident on Murray’s face, awash in a sense of long-awaited euphoria.

And from there, things took off as Murray, arguably rightfully or at least fittingly, presided over the rapturous and raucous Cubs celebration. And Twitter was there to document it all, from his champagne-swilling to his on-field interviews to him honking the horn of the car Ben Zobrist was awarded for being named MVP.

And then it was on to the clubhouse for Mr. Murray.

But perhaps the highlight of all the Murray-spawned madcap mayhem was his “interview” of Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein for FOX Sports.

Odd are near-certain many more wild and wonderful things occurred involving Murray as the Cubs basked in their thrilling World Series triumph. And it goes without saying that it wouldn’t have been the same without Cubs jester extraordinaire Bill Murray presiding over the festivities.
