30 Years Ago, Bill Murray Called A Full Cubs Game And It Was Glorious

"This is the closest I've been to actually having decent seats at a Cubs game."

Most people know Bill Murray’s affection for the Cubs from his antics during last year’s legendary season, when the team broke the curse and won their first championship since 1908.

Back in April of 1987 ― 30 years ago this week ― Murray was still hanging around Wrigley Field, cheering on his favorite team, much to the delight of ... well, anyone watching.

While subbing in for Hall Of Fame announcer Harry Caray, Murray joined broadcaster Steve Stone for a full game against the then Montreal Expos.

The commentary that follows should be featured somewhere in the Hall Of Fame at Cooperstown if it isn’t already. Below is a video of some of the highlights.
