Cubs Super Fans Bill Murray And Eddie Vedder Celebrate The World Series Victory
Nobody was more excited about the Chicago Cubs World Series victory than super fans Bill Murray and Eddie Vedder — with the exception of the players who won it.
The comedian and the Pearl Jam frontman are the team’s most famous fans, and Wednesday night a lifetime of pulling for a team that just couldn’t win the big one finally did it. So they took the field to celebrate with the winning team.
The two Cubs super fans have been in attendance at every single World Series game, and both sang the famed “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” at Wrigley Field.

Murray and Vedder also joined up in Wrigleyville on Saturday at a private house party following a Game 4 loss and sang The Band’s “The Weight.” The song seemed an appropriate tune for the Cubs fans to sing as they have been pulling for a famously cursed team for their entire lives.
Murray even carried on into the locker room where he and Cubs president Theo Epstein shared some champagne in celebration of the big win.
The Cubs released a new music video for Eddie Vedder’s love song to the team “All The Way,” which he wrote back in 2007. The video shows players and fans celebrating after the World Series victory.
The curse is now officially over, and the Chicago Cubs are World Series champions.
