Bill Murray Watched the Cubs Beat the Mets, Rode the 7 Train With Fans

Cubs superfan had a nice little Monday.

As an actor, Bill Murray gets to pick his projects and largely set his schedule, and he's created one that allows him to check out a tremendous amount of live sporting events. Fresh off checking out UConn's second consecutive national title with his son Luke, who is an assistant coach, Murray was in Queens on Monday night to take in the Chicago Cubs-New York Mets game at Citi Field.

Murray has been long-tenured as the Cubs' most notable celebrity fan and has a rich history with the franchise, from appearing in the broadcast with Harry Caray to serving as a good luck charm in 2016's curse-breaking World Series. So a regular season road game in the month of April isn't entirely a significant entry in his fandom, but it was an exciting night at the ballpark as Chicago broke up a no-hitter late and escaped with a 3-1 win.

Which meant Murray had a happier subway ride back to Manhattan than the Mets fans who also piled into the 7 train. And thanks to the magic of social media, we now that is something that happened.

Christopher Morel sealed things for the Cubs with a go-ahead home run in the top of the ninth inning. He did not ride the 7 train after the game.
