GOOD NEWS Bill Murray Gave Extra World Series Ticket to Random Cubs Fan Outside Ballpark
— MLB (@MLB) November 2, 2016
At last night's Game 6 of the World Series, Bill Murray had an amazing and unexpected gift for a fellow Chicago Cubs fan.
Karen Michel, a Cubs fan, was hanging around outside Cleveland's Progressive Field before the game, hoping she would come across someone who was selling an extra ticket.
Disappointed, she turned away from the ticket window and noticed Murray walking by.
She started following the "Ghostbusters" and "Groundhog Day" star, and it turned out to be a great decision.
"He turns around and says, 'Here, here's a ticket,'" she told MLB.com. "And he kind of shuttled me into the door. I thought it was just a ticket to get in."
It wasn't, however. It was a ticket to sit right next to Murray in the box section right behind home plate!
"I watched five games at home and they're showing Eddie Vedder, [Chris] Chelios, whatever, and I'm like, 'I wonder if I'll see any of those people,'" Michel said. "Of course now, I'm here, and I see all kinds of people."
"I thought it was just a ticket to get in. I didn't think it would be anything like this."
The Cubs and Indians play the winner-take-all Game 7 tonight.
