Bill Murray is still reeling from the Cubs' loss to the Mets

Posted on


To kick off his week of shows in Brooklyn, Jimmy Kimmel invited Bill Murray out of his “Cubs-induced depression” to appear on Monday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! To nobody’s surprise, the actor entered dressed as some sort of 17th century aristocratic clown — in full white makeup and Shakespearean garb.

“I don’t know what you’re doing, but you look great,” Kimmel told Murray.

The Chicago-born Murray couldn’t help but discuss his Cubs playoff loss to the New York Mets the night prior.

“I believe in the words of the song, that you root, root, root for the home team and if they don’t win it’s a shame,” the Rock the Kasbah star said.

Kimmel, who attended the Mets/Cubs National League Championship Series game in New York with Murray, said the actor tried to help his Cubs win by touching the Cubs’ lineup card.

“Not only did you touch it, you rubbed it all over your body. Do you think that is why the Cubs lost last night?”
