Bill Murray crashed a White House press briefing to talk about the Cubs

Written by

After a solid W last night from the Cubs, fans are beyond excited for the Cubs to come back to Wrigley on Saturday. That includes Bill Murray, who stopped by a White House press briefing to talk up the Cubs. When he was asked, "Mr. President, do you think the Cubs will win?", he responded positively, "I feel very confident that Clayton Kershaw is a great, great pitcher, but we've got too many sticks."

Decked out in Cubs gear, the actor continued his assessment of the team, "At home, our crowd, the weather. You get a little bit of autumn in Chicago. You don't get that in Los Angeles. Trees just die, you know what I'm saying. In Illinois, they flourish." Yeah, we're excited for the boys to come back too. Game six of the NLCS will be played on Saturday, October 22 at 7:08pm at Wrigley Field. Murray will likely be there, giving us some more GIF-worthy moments
