Hello, Fellow Cubbies Fan. I’m Bill Murray. Unless I’m Tom Hanks. Here, Have A (Pretty Good) Seat
What’s Bill Murray gonna do next? One just never knows. Exhibit B: Bill’s a noted Chicago Cubs
fan admirer adulator who’s been preaching the glory of the team to anyone within earshot, including the residents over there at the White House. And now he’s even handing out game tickets to random fans.
MLB.com reports that Cubs afficionado Karen Michel had her sights set on a single ticket for game six of the World Series, but ended up with something way better: a ticket providing access to Bill Murray’s box seat.
Says Karen, “He turns around and says, ‘Here, here’s a ticket.'” “And he kind of shuttled me into the door. I thought it was just a ticket to get in. But it was a ticket to sit right here.”

So … did they chat during the game? Oh, they chatted. About childhood things. “I asked, ‘When you went to the Cubs game, who did you go with?'” Karen said. “He said his brother and his father. I have all sisters, and me and my dad would go to the baseball games. We talked about stuff like that.”
Is there a Mark Twain Nice Guy Award? We have a candidate.
